    Would the hire be covering the Shelbyville Sharks vs. the Springfield Atmos in the annual Pigskin Classic?

    This job has some good buzz. The last guy left to take a job in Capital City, and your main competition is that Springfield Shopper rag.

    The Shopper is not a rag.

    It was founded in 1883 by Johnny Newspaperseed, a small boy who travelled around America founding newspapers.

    The Shopper merged with the Springfield Times, Post, Globe, Herald, Jewish News, and Hot Sex Weekly, becoming Springfield's biggest paper

    Be careful there, Shelbyville isn't quite right. The fire hydrants are painted yellow.

    There is also the great lemon tree dispute too.

    You mock, but the Sentinel-News was nominated for a Pulitzer for its investigative reporting of that little brouhaha.

    I've heard Shelbyville is one of the great cities in America to get your ass kicked in. If you're into that sort of thing.
