By JAVIER MANJARRESI was having a conversation today with an old political friend about the upcoming gubernatorial election next year,when Charlie Crist’s name came up. My friend reminded me about the time when Governor Crist called me out onto the football field. The moment was priceless, as over a dozen media outlets looked on, Crist asked me to run a post pattern into to the end zone and catch one of his passes.
Here is what I wrote at the time-
If Crist decides to run for Governor, will we see a repeat of this play? Or will a Crist-Sink Democrat primary decrease the likelihood that he will be the next governor of Florida, and will he be able to ‘go deep’ if he had to? Either way, I am up to the challenge. Bring it on Charlie 😉
Knowing that this was a good photo op for Charlie, I decided not to out run the pass by turning on my blazing fast speed- lucky for Charlie that I wasn’t wearing the right shoes. Now the question that needs to be asked is- will Marco Rubio ever man up and take on Sharky on in a little mano-a-mano football? According to Rubio, during his college playing days, he was a Revis-esque shut-down cornerback– or so he says.
Message to Rubio-bring it on, Charlie already did.
