    According to Editor and Publisher.

    Hartford doesn't stun me, especially if they don't regularly cover the Pats. The AJC stuns the fuck out of me. What is that a 7-hour drive from Atlanta to Tampa? Holy shit. I worked at a paper nowhere close to the level of the AJC and they would never have any fewer than five at a Super Bowl.

    Those were different times, Mizzou.

    No kidding, but a paper like the AJC having no one at a game played in a bordering state is unimaginable.

    Honestly, that's reason enough to send someone. If someone had asked me how many the AJC was sending this year, I would have guessed two writers and a columnist.

    Then you haven't been paying attention.

    I'd have assumed they were sending someone...but not three someones.

    And I doubt your former paper is sending 5 this year, Mizzou.

    Hines Ward, plus former Falcons TE Ken Whisenhunt.

    Maybe the AJC can sweet-talk one of its 10 or more former employees in Tampa (Kindred, Mort, etc.) into filing something.

    Got three from my shop there.
    Of course, I hope we're still printing a product by Monday to run their stuff.

    Trust me, I know way more than I wish to about cutbacks and not covering something that would have been a given in any other year. But the AJC not covering the Super Bowl is stunning.
