    I keep looking to see who the sports owner is. Is the subject header incorrect, or are my reading comprehension skills failing me?

    This is Iowa? I blame the cornfields.

    Says the guy owns something called Competitive Edge. And also was once briefly vaulted into national news for a backyard confrontation with President Barack Obama. So that is totally not funny at all. You might call him John The Plumber.

    But what kind of hooker works in a price range that includes a sports owner and a reporter?

    One who sells herself cheap, just like the reporter?

    Neither. I saw on another story (can't find it now) that the business owner is a part-owner of the arena football league team there.

    Is that a fireable offense for the sports reporter?

    Only if he was on the clock. If he wasn't on the clock and wasn't getting paid overtime, it's none of the paper's business.
