    ...which one would it be? Read this question in Bill Simmons' mailbag column today (yeah, I know he's not liked) and it just seemed like a fun question to throw out there.
    So what would it be? Something from the movies, books, whatever?
    I would think one of Rocky Balboa's bigger fights, although the Super Bowl in "Black Sunday" would be a hell of an experience.
    And in a nod to Simmons, he mentioned the basketball game in "Teen Wolf" where the guy first turns into a werewolf. If you were working for the Podunk Press and covering that game, how in the hell would you handle it?

    I'd like to break the story about Shoeless Joe playing baseball in Iowa.

    But I guess Terrence Mann beat me to it, though.

    Remember that one time when Bobby Boucher showed up at halftime and the Mud Dogs won the Bourbon Bowl? That's what I would do.

    It would equivalent of the South Florida going in and beating Bobby Bowden and FSU in the Orange Bowl We're talking like the 1998 season.

    Maybe you should ask if she wants to go anywhere in public with you.

    (does your game have anything to do with the Steelers or the Pirates?)
