In today's sports section, news stand edition of the SC Times, Bill Plaschke had what appeared to be a nice article about CRN titled "Back In Blue". While perusing today's Ted Miller's Pac-10 Lunch Links column I clicked on the link referencing CRN gaining street cred. Up pops the SC Times online edition, what's the title of the article you say? "Slick Rick Neuheisel looking solid at UCLA." What gives?
PS I apologize for not inserting the links, this is my first fanpost, so it is all new to me. Thanks
UPDATE (M): Not about to encourage anyone to increase Pla$Chke's web traffic, but this was a good portion of the article (emphasis added):
Last Friday night, Neuheisel wanted to attend four inner-city high school football games while burnishing his growing street cred.
So he traveled there by whirlybird, buzzing low above fields filled with wide-eyed kids before games at Compton, Crenshaw, Long Beach Poly and Carson.
How did they know it was him?
"I told the players that watching their games was so important to me, I would be there even if meant taking a helicopter," he said.
Wouldn't it have helped if "UCLA" was printed on the side of the copter?
"That's next," he said.
Eventually he landed at the Compton Airport to climb in a car that would take him to several sidelines, but his driver didn't show up on time, so he began walking down Alondra Boulevard toward Compton High.
Yeah, you guessed it, a father wearing a Compton jersey spotted him, pulled over, and drove him to the game.
From helicopter to home run.
Rick Neuheisel, walking down Alondra Boulevard on a Friday night to get to Compton High.
Take THAT, Chuck Norris.
