Lazear Ready to Play at WVU
So I wasn't sure what to think at first when I read this story. Should I laugh that My Main Man Pat has such a terrific memory? Should I be ticked that another journalist would give Lazear the platform to say whatever he wants and not call me? Should I just shrug it off and grow thicker skin?
For those who want the Cliff's Notes version, I wrote about the five former Whitman High football players who thought it would be a hoot to take a replica gun and rob the Smoothie King. All five were sent to other schools; three pleaded guilty to various charges and a fourth was found guilty by a jury in Montgomery County Circuit Court; the fifth had his case sent to Juvenile Court. One of the five was one-time All-Met linebacker Pat Lazear, who subsequently took a scholarship offer to play for West Virginia.
Now, Pat - who reportedly is in position to play on special teams as a freshman -- tells the West Virginia Gazette:
"Back at home with the Washington Post and the writer there, Josh Barr, he had it out for me,'' Lazear said. "He was trying to win the Pulitzer off me.''
No doubt the Pulitzer is in the mail. If not, maybe Pat or Dave Hickman can put in a good word for me. At the very least, hopefully I can get a second-place or honorable mention.
If not, oh well. For Pat's sake, I hope he doesn't follow the lead of these teammates.
