The students of UVa will often say the only criminals around Charlottesville are the townies. Two upstanding members of Mr. Jefferson's University's football team, Junior offensive lineman Will Barker (left) and redshirt freshman lineman Dave Roberts are seeking to be agents of change. They were both arrested early Saturday morning because they were at Club 216 and stole beer out of a cooler. Things are a little more complicated by Roberts, who is 19, using a fake ID. The fun part of the story, though, is that Club 216 is a gay establishment.
So what are two strapping young Cavalier football players doing at a gay club at 3:45 in the morning? Maybe they're two confused boys who are trying to let their inner dancing bear come out? A little early for the weekly meeting of the Charlottesville Underground Fetish Fellowship? Probably not.
As most people who live in a place where last call comes at 2am, if you really want alcohol, you'll go anywhere to get drinks. So, the boys know Club 216 is gay but don't care because the call of beer is stronger than the call of homophobia. This kind of makes me happy. Besides, the redhead (fauxhawk aside) is hot. -Kelvin Cabrera
