Lawrence Guy is a new Patriot, and naturally, Patriots Nation has a lot to learn. On Tuesday morning, he helped expedite that process when he was a guest on Pats Chat hosted by Ashlee Feldman at The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon.
Lawrence took questions from a live audience, as well as from Facebook live viewers, and he was an open book. Not only were some of his answers hilarious, they showed who Lawrence is when the helmet comes off. Here are eight of the best answers Lawrence had to some burning questions.
1. When it comes to his music, Lawrence is looking for lyrics.
“Right now, I’m listening to Childish Gambino. He’s very lyrical with his stuff, and he’s enjoying music and putting out good music. I’m all about lyrics.”
2. Don’t call him Larry, but he does have some other nicknames.
“They call me the Cable Guy sometimes. I’ve also been called The Trash Man, you know. The Garbage Man.” He didn’t give much explanation on this one.
3. Lawrence is pretty frank with the challenges of fatherhood.
“It’s not the changing of diapers. It’s that you think you’ve got a pee diaper, and you open it up and there’s poo everywhere. Just so much poo. You can’t even believe this little human made all this poo.”
4. He has a lot of tattoos, but one stands above the rest.
“[The tattoos] are all on the right side … I leave the left side for my family. My favorite one so far, I would say, I got my infinity sign right here. Me and my wife got these together.”
5. When asked what he does when strangers approach him on the street, Lawrence gave an incredible answer.
“I react normally. It all depends on the situation I’m in. I say hello or what not, but if I’m in a situation where I just want to go out, I tell them I’m a plumber. ‘You do plumbing?’ Yeah, I do plumbing. One time I told an Uber drive I was a construction worker, and by the time we got in a five minute conversation, he knew I had no idea what I was talking about. He was like, ‘You don’t do construction.’ I was like, ‘You’re right. I do real estate.”
6. Before football, there was another sport.
“I thought I was going to go all pro in soccer. I was never the goalie. The wouldn’t let me be goalie. But soccer, I’ve got handles. You should see me on FIFA — before all the updates and stuff. The old FIFA.”
7. He is the only human who didn’t cry watching This is Us.
Lawrence said he is watching Stranger Things, Ballers, Hunter X and This is Us. When Ashlee asked if he cries when watching This is Us, Lawrence was quick to say no. “No tears,” he said, but we’ve got to be honest. We’re not buying it.
8. He’s full of great advice.
One student asked Lawrence for advice as they pursue their own careers, and he had great words of wisdom. “Never give up. There’s always going to be a downfall in everybody’s path in life. You just can’t take that as, ‘I’m going to quit.’ You have to take that as, ‘I’m going to continue to fight for what I believe in.’ If you continue to fight, then no one can tell you anything.”
