Romar: 'My dreams are getting bigger'

SEATTLE, Wash. -- After four years of coaching the University of Washington men's basketball team, Lorenzo Romar has decided to reach for new heights.

"I think the Final Four would be cool," Romar told sources, "but enough of this basketball shit. It's just too emotionally draining. So, starting now, I'm turning my focus to politics."

Romar did not discuss what office, if any, he was planning on running for, and did not seem to even know when the next election is, but he was to be taken seriously. He also left in unclear whether or not he'd coach UW next season.

"Lynn (Swann) is running for the governor of Pennsylvania," said Romar. "And look at the guy. He could catch passes ok, but he was a fucking terrible sideline-reporter. If he can run for office, so can I."

The support for Romar, despite the thin political background, would be tremendous.

"I don't give a shit if he doesn't know the difference between a republican and a democrat," said a member of the Dawg Pack. "Romar's the fuckin' man."

Added another fan: "I'd vote for Coach (Romar) in a sec. Just look at the guy. He breathes success."

The officiating of the Huskies' Sweet 16 loss to Connecticut does not seem to be a factor in Romar's decision.

"Sure, the refs sucked, but that's the nature of the game," said Romar. "But in politics, you control the shots yourself. No damn zebras will be getting in my way. I just can't wait. I haven't been this excited since I first came to U-dub."

is it just me or does Romar look like a crackhead in that picture?

I think that is wrong to portray Romar as a guy who cusses in private, when he so clearly never does that.
