LOS ANGELES - Hayes Pullard bleeds Blue and Gold. Not UCLA Blue and Gold, but Crenshaw Blue and Gold.
Theres a difference.
Its two different colors, Pullard said.
Some former UCLA Bruins who are also Crenshaw alums tried to tell him different. Pullard had a talk with former Crenshaw stars, Brian Price and Reggie Carter earlier this week. Carter and Price were heavily recruited coming out of one of the top programs in the City Section. They chose UCLA.
I was talking to older guys like Brian Price and Reggie Carter (Tuesday) night about that, Pullard said. I was like 'Its not royal blue and gold, its powder blue and gold. Its not the same. Dont say you bleed blue and gold. Its not the same.
The youngest of the trio stood his ground.

As he does from time to time on the football field, Pullard went again...
