Go fish: Recommended reading for Holmgren

Dan LeBatard's piece about Jimmy Johnson living the good life in Florida made me wonder why Mike Holmgren might prefer the NFL sideline to a fishing line at age 60.

Johnson, 65, walked away from the Dolphins a decade ago. Holmgren has hinted about coming back in some capacity for the 2010 season.

Some guys can walk away and rarely if ever miss it. One of Holmgren's former players, center Robbie Tobeck, seems to have pulled it off. He is co-hosting a fishing show on the radio and recently launched a blog on the subject. Bet he doesn't miss the meeting room when he's hooking into a big salmon.
