Deep thoughts from the AP agate desk

    I called New York a few minutes ago, wondering about the second CWS box score of the day.

    Me: "I don't think we've seen that yet."

    AP: "You haven't seen it because we haven't sent it. You should be able to see it once we send it. ... It's being worked on."

    I have found that "it's being worked on" is often code for "we forgot to send it."

    Box arrives, rather quickly after I called about it ... and 42 minutes after the 1st lead writethru on the story.

    If it happened during Festivus, then we'd know what kind of miracle that was!
