The recently married Jerry Brewer -- congrats! -- greets us on this Friday morning with an amusing column about Washington offensive lineman Skyler Fancher chasing down a purse thief in the U district.

This wasn't just an impulse grab. The 6-foot-6, 289-pound Fancher chased the lout for about 10 minutes. A guy who was helping him got hurt during the chase and -- oh, by the way -- Fancher is coming back from surgery on his right leg.

Fancher wants to be a Secret Service agent. He can put this bit of derring-do on his résumé.
