Twitter: No, but I did find this guy, who shut everything off for Earth Hour and WAS NEVER HEARD FROM AGAIN.
Potential Berman nicknames: Sleepy, Pretty Boy, The Gentleman of Boxing (because he’s not original, you see)
Story that’s bound to become the premise of a horrible movie if Wikipedia is to be believed: Floyd’s scholarship at Cretin-Derham Hall High School required him to work as a janitor. He didn’t solve any complex equations in secret, but he was the two-time state player of the year. That seems worthy of a full scholarship, and a little something on the side.
