AP fixated on Sherpas?

    Found it interesting that two days in a row, AP writers referenced Sherpas...

    ^BC-BKN--NBA Finals,1012
    ^Cavaliers facing steep finals climb
    ^AP Photos
    ^AP Sports Writer=
    CLEVELAND (AP) — Time to bust out the hiking boots, grab some sturdy ropes and maybe even hire a Sherpa.
    The Cleveland Cavaliers have some serious climbing to do.

    ^BC-GLF--US Open-Par 3.5,0744
    ^Oakmont's No. 8 a test — and a workout
    ^AP National Writer=
    OAKMONT, Pa. (AP) — Golfers would do well to stock up before reaching No. 8 at this week's U.S. Open. Grab some water, a few bananas, maybe an energy bar.
    Better yet, hire a Sherpa.
    No. 8 at Oakmont Country Club is a 288-yard par 3 and, no, that's not a misprint. It's the longest par 3 in major championship history, and it's going to give the Open field quite a test — not to mention a workout.

    AP's editors have a long uphill slog if they're going to weed out this kind of stuff. Maybe they should hire a sherpa.

    If I told them once, I told them a million times -- No More Sherpas!

    Sherpas like the attention.

    Nice work.
  6. I like sherpas - especially the Val Kilmer kind - they have great weed.
