    So the indoor pro football team here was playing out of town tonight.

    I did everything right ... called the newspaper in the other town at mid-week, got all square for them to send us their story.

    Tonight, just on a hunch, I check with them.

    "Oh, our guy didn't get out there tonight."

    Um, okay. Any idea what happened at the game?

    "No, not really."

    A couple of minutes later, I get in touch with somebody from the other team.

    "Well, we called something in to them. Didn't they tell you?"

    No, not really.

    Man, I admire your devotion to all things job. But good Christ this indoor football thing is going to kill you.
