Argh. Another error my Marrero.

Years ago, I was a student at college in Chicago. The Bears had a clumsy QB named Bobby Douglass who gamied more yards running than passing. Douglass was a big guy who ran like a fullback...would drop back, tuck the ball, and plow forward.

Bears fans hated that. They wanted a passer named Virgil Carter to start. Every game, fans would chant, "Carter! Carter! Carter!"

Finally, Douglass got hurt, Carter totted into the game, and the crowd stood to cheer.

Next play, Carter threw a feeble interception, the crowd groaned, and sat down.

I hope Marrero is not the Nats Virgil Carter.
