    **Understand the importance of making deadlines*** Really? This has to be listed? Scares me to think of why they're having to itemize that.

    My favorite is "available to work when sporting events occur." I thought that was kind of the point of being a sports editor/reporter.

    I was at a news job where the sports writer refused to work on the weekends. They fired me then he quit. What goes around, comes around.
