    I understand the urge to get a first write-thru out quick, but still ...

    Did the original have: Dipshit, Some Fucker, Podunk Assclown?

    An AP cutline confused "ankle" with "angle" tonight. Minor detail...

    Maybe this was a different thread, but why did the AP writers go on byline strike during the past week? It appears finished. Just wondering if it's the same thing as in January.

    Also, I am tempted to continue withholding their bylines as a strike against their strike.

    Someone here got their wish today: NL Capsules and AL Capsules on the wire.

    Don't need to be an AP shooter to do something like that. Last week sent a shooter out to a basketball camp, he got a shot of a girl dribbling a ball with each hand, and his cutline said she was working on her double dribbles.

    Bump for the unbelievable ... NCAA men's and women's hoops capsules moved with team nicknames (like in the pro capsules), not the school. As Nancy Kerrigan would say, why, why, why?

    Bulldogs vs. Wildcats. Really easy to figure out, I'm sure.

    I believe Eagles vs. Tigers would be the hardest to figure out. But Bulldogs/Wildcats is up there.

    Via Wikipedia: "The 12 most used names of four-year college teams: Eagles (76), Tigers (46), Bulldogs (39), Panthers (33), Knights (32), Lions (32), Bears (30), Hawks (28), Cougars (27), Pioneers (28), Warriors (27) and Wildcats (27)."

    Imagine how much fun it would be if the UC-Irvine Anteaters get ranked and play the UC-Santa Cruz Banana Slugs.
