The Los Angeles Rams’ Jake Gervase is just not a corner-cutter.
You do not grow to be an all-state soccer participant at Assumption Excessive College, or go from walk-on to starter on the College of Iowa, or make the Nationwide Soccer League as an un-drafted free agent, by beating the system.
Shortcuts will not be in his DNA.
So think about the humor — and I can not emphasize sufficient how good-natured it was — watching Gervase — within the nook of radio station 97X Friday — armed with a Smith & Wesson folding knife — making an attempt to trim a bit of wooden from of his victorious pinewood derby automotive.
“Let’s run it once more,” Gervase stated, moments after profitable the superstar portion of the 2Dorks Derby, benefiting native Boy Scouts. “I used to be instructed about 5 ounces is OK.”
Now in his second yr with the Rams, Gervase was recent from a pretend tongue lashing from runners-up Pat Angerer and Tim Dwight, former Iowa and NFL standouts, who completed second and third, respectively, within the 2Dorks Derby.
“Cheeeeaaaater,” Angerer coughed, moments after it as found Gervase’s superstar pinewood derby automotive weighed 5.1 ounces, a shade previous the prescribed 5 ounces for derby vehicles, despite the fact that race officers by no means stated a phrase about its weight till Angerer and Dwight jokingly challenged the championship race outcomes.
