Remember Lazo Alavanja? First pick a few years back, a guy who was going to be our stud in the central midfield for years to come, the cause celebre for Burn fans everywhere? Yeah, you remember him. You also remember how we all thought that Jeffries was dumb as a board for not playing him at all, then trading him last year to Miami. Well, fast forward to 2002. It seems that his star is fallen. He's with DC United now and he's the favorite whipping boy of the DC United faithful, some of whom now refer to him as "the worst player in the league." Some United fan commentary on Mr. Alavanja. I kinda feel sorry for the guy. I broke bread with the guy when he was at The Inferno's table a few years ago at the Kickoff Luncheon. But maybe Jeffries did know what he was doing, after all.
