On Friday, we posted a piece on how Greg Olsen was booted from a high school field down the street from his home. Olsen said he’s been working out there regularly during the lockout but was recently told he had to leave.
If not for the lockout, this would never be a story. (If no lockout, Olsen wouldn’t be working out at a high school, for one, and for two, there would be copious other happenings that are ten times more interesting/newsworthy than this.)
But, alas, there is a lockout. So not only does Olsen and the high school field become a story, but it also warrants a follow-up story. The follow-up here is courtesy of Olsen himself, who wrote the story for us (and everyone else) on his Twitter account. Olsen’s aim seems to be towards killing any rumors about him having been uncooperative with the high school.
Here’s what he had to say:
“This HS field thing has gotten outa control. Just to get story str8. No class was on field. Met no teachers. Left when asked and called school. Asked If I could sign paperwork or use at another time in message which wasn’t returned. Also have been to the school to speak to various classes and groups with no issue since moved in district. Blown way out proportion.”Thanks Greg. Hope you can work out at Halas Hall soon. (That would be a real story.)
