02:24 PM ET 12.20 | Mike Leach is already a published author, having partnered with Bruce Feldman to release a successful autobiography. For his next project of letters, he's pairing with a Washington State professor to write a book about Apache warrior Geronimo: "[My interest] started when my mom would read us books when we were kids, and for some reason I got into Geronimo," Leach said. "We'd go to the library and grab these historic books about him, and she would read them every night."

First pirates, now Geronimo. Just make sure you get the story right on the Chiricahua Apache and the fight for their homelands, Leach, or I'm taking YOU to the woodshed.

I remember as kids whenever we jumped down from some formidable height, like a wall for instance, we'd yell "Geronimooooooo!!!"
