Using SJ.com to file a story

    One of our writers (a member of this board) was covering a high school playoff game tonight and he was at a school that blocked everything even remotely questionable from their network.

    (It blocked CNN.com because there was a picture of a girl in a bikini.)

    It blocked all of the usual e-mail avenues as well. But guess what? It didn't block out SportsJournalists.com! So he filed his story via PM to me.

    Worked like a charm.

    Anyone else have a story like this? And how did SportsJournalists.com escape such censorship?

    Now we're gonna have a SportsJournalists.com wire service?

    That is one great story.

    SportsJournalists.com once saved me from hanging myself in the shower of my first-floor room at a fleapit in Needles, Arizona.

    Mr Jones,

    Was the Career Suicide Hotline you called? Where do you sign up for volunteer shifts?

    (And does anyone have the number?)

    YHS, etc

    Jonesie, hate to break it to you, but had you checked out for good, it would've been California gendarmes who would have cut you down.

    I don't recall Arizona annexing Needles, although it would make a great sister city for Kingman. :D

    I swear there's a Needles south of the Grand Canyon.

    Maybe it was California.

    Damned if I know. I was living on mushrooms from the forest floor. They made me feel all gloopy.

    Sportsjournalists.com? What is that site? Is that run by Poynter? I'll have to check it out sometime.

  11. Goddamn, Jonesy, I was feeling bad enough today.

    Needles and Blythe, The Armpit of America.
