  1. Someone just called the office and asked, "When are they going to give out the Heisman award?"

    Classic. I've always said our readers were the smartest.

    I love those calls.

    They beat trying to explain to some gearhead that NASCAR is way more popular than NHRA and that's why we don't run stories on drag racing.

    And those aren't as bad as the people who call our office to ask when the cable will be back on, because State is playing a big game and they're missing it.

    I routinely have people call to complain that we didn't have anything in the paper about something they saw on tv -- TAPED -- the night before.

    You should move to Cleveland. I hear they don't have that problem there.

  11. One of news pals took a call in which a little old lady wanted her to "slow down the damn ticker thing. It's going too fast." It was on CNN.

    There are three different cable providers in our area.
    I love the calls asking what channel number a particular station is on a particular cable provider.
