    I haven't read the link yet but someone brought me a copy of what they did Monday after the Series - MONDAY - and it was pretty fucking impressive.

    A pretty wild week, particularly with the BC writer on the DL for a huge game.

    Awesome stuff. Weeks like that are why newspapers will never die.

    Great account of those two weeks. I was impressed at how they lined up stringers for Breeders Cup, college football, etc. That takes some effort when no one would have said boo if they just ran wire.

    That's pretty fucking incredible. Eighty-five pages for the World Series and 238 for two weeks? That's nuts. I wish I could have seen some papers.

    That's just an insane amount of copy to be edited and coverage to be coordinated.
    I wonder how many ads were sold for those World Series sections (just so I know if how many of those pages were just one or two stories due to an over-abundance of ads)

    I wonder if any ad managers tried to tell the sports dept. they couldn't have a special section because "they couldn't sell it". ::)

    Antoine Walker must be really sad he ended up in Minnesota in exchange for a free agent.

    I disagree.

    People expect that out of the Globe.

    I can't tell you off the top of my head, but their special sections often are pretty deep.

    I counted the number of people whose work I saw in the Monday section (photogs' names, reporters, columnists) ... that's nine. And I'm sure they had at least one editor out there and maybe a photo tech.
