    I wrote earlier about being new with sports writing and asking for advice. A few people who responded to my post wanted something to change when people like me post things like I did. What about if when someone signs up for sportsjournalists.com they get a newsletter kind of thing with frequently asked questions that new writers ask? No real need to respond, this is just an idea.

    Gomer, fetch me a beer.

    And while you're up, fetch one for my friend hplove.

    Actually, it wasn't intended to be hostile. But you've proved me right on the sensitive comment.

    And Cadet, I await the day 100 posts from now (or another six months at my rate) when I can tell you to take your beer and shove it. I drink rum.

    In the meantime, here you go:

    Take my beer and shove it? Yes, at times I can be sensitive.

    Then add this to your list of advice for surviving in the sports world: Don't be sensitive. Either ignore the things that hurt you, or fling it back, but don't ever take it personally. They'll eat you alive.

    Gomer, the newbie as he may be, wasn't being hostile with you. He was just telling it like it is.

    I think everyone except hplove can see it wasn't hostile.

    thanks for the advice. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I meant it more in a sarcastic tone, but I guess that's a part of journalism I need to learn how to convey. Well, hopefully, if someone tries to eat me alive, I don't taste very good.
