Unless you're a fan of Florida Atlantic football, you probably have no idea who Dave Lamont is, and I can't blame you. I had no idea who Lamont was until about five minutes before I started writing this post, but I can tell you that he's now one of my favorite play-by-play guys in college football.
Move over, Pam Ward! There's a new man in town.
You see, Dave Lamont and I have quite a few things in common. Neither of us are big fans of quarterbacks taking shots to the head while carrying the ball after they've already slid and ended the play ... which is exactly what happened to FAU quarterback Jeff Van Camp during a game against Arkansas State last week, and Lamont got a bit angry over the lack of a penalty flag.
The other thing we have in common is that we're willing to fight anybody in the press box, anytime, anywhere. Bring it on, beat jockeys.
Unfortunately, Lamont and I stop having things in common here, as he has since apologized to everybody in the press box since making the remarks, though he's saving his apology to Sun Belt commissioner Wright Waters until he sees him in person this weekend. I wouldn't apologize for anything because I'm right stubborn.
Hat tip: SBNation and Spencer Hall, whom I wouldn't fight, even if I saw him in a press box staring me down. Not because I'm scared, but because he bought me a beer once.
