  1. I've been a sportswriter - well, a sportswriting intern - for three weeks. The score so far:

    Hot Dogs 5
    Salads 2

    I'm wondering if I this is par for the course.
  2. It bothers me tremendously that my first post has a typo.

    See the modify button up there? Go fix your typo.
    Then explain to me why this is on the journalists' board.

    Moddy, have you seen most sports journalists at games? We're not usually the thinnest people in any given room.
    SVB, be afraid. Be very afraid.

    No, that is not par for the course. Where the f--- did you find two salads? And only five hot dogs in three weeks? During summer baseball?

    Hot dogs 15, nachos 6, candy bars 10, popcorn 4. Now that would be par for the course. Get used to it, kid. Concession stands at sporting events aren't big on offering healthy options.

    Get creative. If I'm at games on the weekends, I'll try to mix in a salad and fruit during the middle of the week.
  7. i don't know if this thread is a joke, but if you really want to you can live a healthy lifestyle and be a sports writer. don't make excuses about the hours or your schedule or the free food you get in the press box. decide to eat healthy and work out, and do it and don't make excuses

    Hell, I'll go along with it. I used to worry about this myself a long time ago.

    I'm not saying it's not possible, but it's hard work eating healthy in our business. It takes some planning and going out of one's way to find healthy options.

    "And there's an audible 'gasp' from the crowd....." :eek:

    But it is kinda funny. ;)
