Saturday night rant

    I don't know where to start, so I'll confine my main comments to this:

    AP's Tallahassee Regional photo coverage on Saturday.

    Four pictures move out of the afternoon knockout game between Stetson and Bethune Cookman.

    Okay, that was pretty timely. I have high hopes for the main event.


    Not a damned thing had moved at 10:30 p.m. Frantic phone calls, yada yada yada.

    Finally, two photos ... two.

    One is pretty good, a play at the wall.

    The other is a play at second. I got chunks of that kind of work in my stool, boyo.

    The Mississippi State pitcher who started a three-hit shutout (he got some late-inning help)?


    Now, quoting Kurt Vonnegut, I would like to address my remarks to the AP's man in Tallahassee:

    You can take a flying f*ck at the mooooooooooon!

    AP did a shit job on photos from the Cavs/Pistons game also, I thought.

    Nothing dazzling, and I needed something dazzling for my front.

    Even the LeBron shots sucked. Big-time.

    I made it work, but AP didn't help me along.

    Maybe we're asking for too much.

    I, too, found the Cavs-Pistons art to be awfully pedestrian, and not nearly the selection to which we've become accustomed.
  5. Hejira, I suggest you require your beat man to take a camera with him and pull double duty. He'd love it!

    And shoot video for the Web, too.
  7. He'd LOVE it!
