    You think a Packers-Bears box would be too much to ask? The game's been over for almost half an hour.

    It's "damn it " AP, according to AP, I believe.

    Seems like the boxes were a little slow trickling in during preseason. I don't worry too much about it during the season since we're a pm'er and can grab them all when all the games are done, but one thing they didn't do tonight is put all the boxes in one or two files. That and I neglected to rewrite some of our stylesheets/paragraph styles (I speak InDesign and Quark) for NFL, gotta sit down with the paginators.

    Today's AP gripe:

    A Detroit Red Wings season preview article did not move before 2:23 p.m. Thursday. Their season starts with a game today at 3 p.m. in Sweden. I was hoping to run it big in my Thursday PM (nothing happens here as far as preps on Wednesday nights and hockey is HUGE here), when I had a lot of space, but because it wasn't available, I had to shoehorn about 30 percent of it onto an inside page with no art and most of my readers will see it after the first game has already started.

    Dammit, AP.

    Should I change the title of this thread to "Running AP Gripe Thread?"

    I got nothing, oddly.

    But, I was working all local copy Friday night and I was out of pocket Thursday night, watching a football game (So. Miss @ UAB) that may have set the sport back 20 years.

    Some Top 25 capsules would be nice.

    (Yes, I know I can put them together myself ... I'm just lazy like that)

    EDIT: Ah, the power of SJ. :D
