    I believe that Otis Sistrunk went to a nearby university.

    I applied, but I didn't put my name on my resume.

    "Microlocal" sounds like a new Gannett term.

    Well, it does cost a few dollars to make a VPA contest entry, if I recall correctly.

    Let's be honest: There are at least 25 papers that have been flamed enough on this board and elsewhere in recent months that this ploy will bring more resumes than the standard "Sports Nut Wanted!" bit.

    Besides, I never did hear who got the Hungry Horse gig.
  8. on the bright side, the best part of this thread is the photo of the legendary Unknown Comic.

    a classic, if you ever caught his act on The Gong Show.

    thanks, SportsPredictor.

    I wonder if the famous "Unknown Shotputter" will apply. He competed at the first event, a track and field invitational, at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. a few years ago. ... can you imagine him on his first story, after he interviews someone and leaves, the person would be saying "Who was that masked man?"
