pressbox romance

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by henryhenry, Dec 15, 2006.

  1. As much as my wife understands the business, and God bless her because most of the time she does, that doesn't keep her from letting out an audible groan half the time when my work cell phone rings or the caller ID shows the newspaper. I'd like to meet the woman who is 100% at peace with her husband being on the road a lot, making or taking calls at all hours and having to drop everything without notice to chase something.

    My only fear is that somewhere down the road I look back and regret what I've put her through.
  2. Industry romance, huh? Go to a copy editor conference. There are some gorgeous young college girls there.
  3. My wife runs a day-care center. 9 to 5. She doesn't have any problems with my schedule. I bust my ass to get home every minute that I can. She knows that. So everyone's happy. I don't even miss that many significant moments. The industry is much more mobile now. I can call, write and send from damn near anywhere.

    In fact, I wrote a story this week while waiting in line at confession. Our church has wireless. Oh yea.

    How many Hail Marys do you have to say for that?

    If I were still in the business, I would bite the bullet and hook up with Erin Andrews.

    The thread title reminds me of an old song by the Amazing Rhythm Aces:

    She said, "you don't look like my type, but I guess you'll do,"
    Pressbox romance, low-rent rendezvous.

    I knew a guy who married the assistant media relations of the college hoops team he covered. Not sure if that "counts" or not for this thread's purpose.
  8. What that counts as is very shaky ground.

    Local ABC affiliate's reporter/weekend anchor. So hot that she's got a restraining order against Al Gore, who's now convinced she's the cause of global warming.

    So wait, you're saying imaginary romances don't count?
  10. In a similar vein, there's a new hour of "My Boys" on TV tonight!

    Yeah, and the best is when one half of the couple is talented and the other is a piece of shit who keeps getting work because Gannett likes the spouse and likes the married couple thing. I saw that happen a couple of times.
