    So if Phil sees his shadow, does that mean you'd get stuck covering the same high school girls basketball game every day for six weeks? If so, fill up the bath tub and grab a toaster.

    Coverage of Penn State since they are somewhat close?
     
  11. Highly doubtful. Wouldn't that be a selling point in the job description otherwise?
     
  12. Just what a small daily in Pennsylvania needs, a sports reporter going out to Happy Valley on Saturdays to write an awesome 1,000-word chronological gamer.
