    Yes, I'm not finding, and I'm on deadline.

    This is a recurring theme from AP with basketball and football games. Sometimes, the box doesn't come for 45 minutes after the game. Yet baseball box scores are sent almost immediately. Don't understand it.

    What the fuck is up with the little 5-inch shit stories?

    I noticed last night for the first time that AP seems to be sending over a one-graf brief seconds after the final buzzer/whistle.

    Also waited 45 minutes the other night for a Suns-Warriors box. Nearly didn't make deadline because I stubbornly held out and kept thinking, "It HAS to be moving in 30 seconds."

    I know. Now, I'm waiting to fill THAT hole because the story's too short.

    They moved agate of MVPs and past results, if that helps fill.

    Tom Withers is usually very fast when it comes to churning out copy. I've got 12 inches so far. That's not enough.

    If you're devoting more than 12 inches of space to the All-Star game, and it's not something your paper is actually staffing, it might be time to rethink how you do things. Just my opinion.

    Baseball boxes are sent from each stadium by computer and can hit the wire within five minutes after the game ends.
    Baseball, basketball, hockey, etc., go through STATS and are produced by it. Hit and miss as to when it hits the wire.
