Devin Thomas Has Many Chips on His Shoulder
After bemoaning the fact that D.C. has so few athletes Twittering earlier this week, here comes Devin Thomas to the rescue. "Jus chillin," he noted yesterday, with characters to spare. Wale reference?
I've always had people doubting me. Do I play with a chip on my shoulder? I've got a party mix of chips on my shoulder. I wear number 11 on my jersey because I was 11 years old when I first knew that football was my thing, but also because 11th was where I thought I was going to go in the draft to Buffalo.....It didn't happen and I stayed around into the 2nd round. Now I do what I've got to do to prove that I could have and should have been a 1st rounder.
It's funny, I had never associated the "chip on one's shoulder" thing with actual potato chips, but hey, why not? Me personally, I've got Chex Mix plus carrot sticks with ranch dressing on my shoulder. More Thomas:
But I don't need to look at my number for motivation. When it says Thomas on my jersey, that means it's Showtime, time to do what I have to do....This season Redskins fans can expect a more reliable guy, more intense, a guy who's going to be out there making plays because it's my time to do that. This is the year I make the coaching staff have to use me.
You know me, I always want more athletes trolling for online fans, though this didn't work too well with the last Redskins wideout who wanted to blog. Thomas, though, at least seems more self-aware: yesterday's entry once again talks about proving people wrong. Oh, and speaking of self-awareness, here's who he lists as his hero:
"Myself. I look at myself like a superhero. More like Batman, because I can't reveal my true self. People either love or hate you, you can't get everybody to love you. Still, if people don't like you, at least you can show who you are and why you do what you do."
Show us, Showtime.
