His Name Is Myron, He Was A Showgirl

April 29th, 2010

Bucs rookie cornerback Myron Lewis was quite a student and had an interesting pre-test ritual

Now Joe couldn’t resist making a big deal when Gerald McCoy told the world his favorite movie is Little Mermaid, a Disney classic and a booger-nosed toddler favorite to this day.

So, to be fair, Joe can’t just blow off learning that Bucs third-round pick Myron Lewis listens to Barry Manilow in order to loosen up and get focused.

Also, educating his readers to this bizarre fact gives Joe a chance to put out there that Lewis graduated Vanderbilt in 3 1/2 years and was an honor roll student. The dude’s a smart guy.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?
[Lewis:] Knowing how to manage school work and leisure time. Also, avoiding procrastination is key to being academically sound.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?
I am a guy who usually goes with the flow, but at this level scheduling and writing down important times and dates are very imperative in order to get things done.

What is your ritual before taking a test?
I usually read over my notes before class and listen to a little Barry Manilow!!!

Joe’s got no problem with Little Mermaid or Barry Manilow. (the “Showgirl” reference in the headline is a popular Manilow lyric.)

And the new-era Bucs defensive players in touch with their feminine side is all good with Joe, as long as they play like savages on Sundays.

    Impresive to graduate in 3.5 yrs from Vandy. But more impressive if he can “Merengue and do the Cha-Cha”.
