Eric Massa’s Fellow Sailors Found Him Simply ‘Amazing!’

“Who is the man behind the hard stare?” asks The Washington Post this morning in a profile of Eric Massa.

The Post got its hands on Eric Massa’s old Naval Academy yearbook from his salty sailing days, and–while most of the out-of-uniform portraits are breezy, smiling shots of young sailors about to graduate–Mr. Massa ‘s is something else.

Eric J.J. Massa looks into the camera with a severe intensity and no hint of a smile. He stands, half-concealed, behind a shrub.

And the caption is odd too. Everyone else had lighthearted biographies of 80 to 100 words beside their photos; Mr. Massa apparently had just one: “Amazing!”
