    Well, I think we've found our new poster/writer unnatural obsession.
  4. What's so bad about that story? I know she just wrote another cooking story, but I'd much rather read this story than some empty Super Bowl X-and-O bullshit column off a press conference. The thing is, I'll bet Robbie Gould's podium at Super Bowl press day will be ringed with reporters looking for the same story because it's something "different."

    Anything remotely new during Super Bowl week is an idea to be praised, not derided. It's a nice feature story on a kicker. It's pretty easy to tell a lot of people on this board have never covered a major sports event.
  6. And this thread will now not end well.

    Hell I thought it was a pretty good feature on someone who could play a big role this Sunday. Nothing cliched about this one at all.

    This was a nice story under the circumstances. But it demonstrates the silliness of the event's mind-boggling hype. If newspapers were really looking to cut costs, they would cut their Super Bowl contingents by about two-thirds.

    I thought it was an interesting and well-written feature.

    It just isn't late January to me unless every writer at the Super Bowl isn't just writing the same thing as everyone else that week, but the same thing that's been written for the past 40 Januarys. Reading this, I feel a sense of loss. Where are my canned quotes? Where? I guess I need to read everyone else to find out all the stop-the-presses news from Super Hype Week.
