    I knew a guy from Buckhannon once. Nice guy. We called him poop-tooth, because, um, he had a poop-tooth. He also had a smoking hot girlfriend, somehow, but she was stolen away early upon their arrival at college and then passed around like a pair of dice.

    That's my Buckhannon story. That along with a year's worth of watching sports games will get you $15,000.

    I hear there's a housewife in Morgantown that's their leading candidate.
    For that salary, they better grab her fast.

    Too late. She just got snagged to cover the cops beat for her mobile home complex's monthly newsletter.

    Next candidate: Pickle Juice

    Remember, the ideal candidate will have a lot of enthusiasm, and drive (sic).

    At least until he or she's been on the job about a week.

    I wouldn't mind getting paid a pittance for watching games -- long as I didn't have to write or anything.

    This does say $15,000 to $20,000.

    I'm sure it's not $20,000, but it's likely not $15,000 either. My guess would be $17,000, which you can still make more at McDonalds.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled thread.

    And Ace, maybe someday you can get to the Plain Dealer and just watch games.
