    Next year will formally mark my 30th year "full-time" in the biz, though I started working as a correspondent for one or the other of the Nashville papers in 1975 or 1976.

    First game I covered, I carried a typewriter, yes sir.

    She's sleeping since you know...she's old and all, turns 55 in a month. You will be reassured to know that I know about white out and DOS.

    I apologize, what I meant to say is that she is full of wisdom and sage advice.
