    Sorry. Just needed to gloat.

    A big story regarding a nearby college football program fell into my lap. That happens all of the time, of course, all over the country.

    But, you see, I am a freelance columnist for a local free weekly and the local newspaper (where I was fucked over for a number of years before being, mercifully, laid off) and television station (where I landed after said fucking and layoff) are clueless and are going to be left holding their dicks.

    I win! They lose!

    Are you going to sell the scoop then? Post it on your own website? What?

    The story I wrote about the whole thing comes out in next week's issue. DoctorFace, FTW!

    Just an excuse for a West Wing quote. Carry on, people.

    I hope the local paper and TV station don't get the story and report it before your paper comes out, Doc.

    Banking on a optimism for you, I hope when the paper and television station read your scoop and say "HTF did we miss that?" they will credit your paper in their reports.

    It is a good feeling when you can pull off something like this. Be working on the follow-up now.

    Doc doesn't appreciate you being a killjoy, Ace.
