    What are some of the most creative pen names you or someone you know have used when you don't want your name attached to a story?

    Best one I ever heard was used by a small-college baseball coach who wrote his own game stories for the Birmingham Post-Herald back in the old days. His byline? "Harold Post."

    Another great one was used by a guy who used to double-dip high school games for us and another paper. His byline for us? "Skip Towne."

    What about your best?
