    You may recall I wrote a similar gamer earlier this season...well, this is the spinoff.Pretty long so I'll just post the link.

    I guess I'm outing myself here but then again I haven't really made any effort to stay anonymous anyways.

    Good read, JME. Are you not a staff writer at the Post?

    That's a good read. Something that's weird is I had a local coach talking to me about this after a game the other day. He said it'd be a great story idea. lol

    How close was that to the story you sent in? If it didn't need much editing you won't be a part-timer for long.

    jg -- Thanks, his hair was black if it matters.

    halfmiler --There were a few small tweaks just to streamline the story, but it was pretty much what I wrote. Thanks for the compliment, I hope you're right :)
