If the Legends lose tonight, the CEO will dress like an unemployed guy

Mark Maloney has your Opening Day preview on the Legends' season.

Interestingly enough, CEO Alan Stein - apparently a Kentucky fan - guarantees a win on Opening Day. If it doesn't happen, he'll dress like Bruce Pearl - the unemployed former basketball coach at Tennessee.

How does starter Mike Foltynewicz feel about it?
"If I don't (get nervous), there's something wrong with me. Yeah, I'll have a little bit of nerves in there. Especially with the CEO sitting there. If we lose that game, he's got to dress up in his enemy's outfit. ... I don't want to upset anybody right away, so I'll try to do my best."

And $1.3m can change a kid's mind - not to go to Texas:
"That was my dream school, so it really took a lot to get me away from Texas. But it did, and I'm glad that it worked out the way it did."
