    Apparently when you cover sports stories, you also have to write about them. Damn.

    Is a prerequisite for this job working Wapakoneta into your cover letter as frequently as possible?

    I swear for a second it said Sports editor, Wikipedia.

    I'd love that job.

    And "sports," used an impressive four times in that first sentence. As long as you can spell both words (and are fluent in Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, AP style and Portuegese) you're golden.

    Be sure to tour the Neil Armstrong museum. Easily worth the sacrifice involved in moving to BFE, Ohio to cover teams no one reads about.
