Today's personality is the only repeat for Portis, Jerome from Southeast DC. Jerome first appeared after the 'Skins trampled over the 49ers. Before that game Portis wore a wig (although he did not name a character) and, the superstitious man that he is, almost every week since then Portis has worn a costume. At this point though (being so close to Halloween), few people had any idea just how far Portis would take his ill-fated attempts at humor.
"You've heard of 'Vampire from Brooklyn'? We'll, I'm Jerome from Southeast D.C.," Portis said, laughing at his own joke. "Going to the big city and night lights this week up there in New York City, I heard, so I've got to be prepared. I don't know what I'm going to see."
Jerome went the way of the Dodo after the 'Skins got clobbered up in New York, but Jerome reappeared, from heaven, last week with a few of his friends (as I noted below). On a completely random side note, Portis went to his high school prom (in Gainesville) with his mother. I'm sure these two facts are completely unrelated.
Check in tomorrow for more coverage of the madness Clinton Portis has slowly been descending into.
