Best Headline of the Week
“Pandemic may end talking to nude men”
The news is usually grim, but the above headline has had me chuckling all week and I had to share it with you! It comes thanks to the San Francisco Chronicle. I thought of not explaining it. After all, it’s so delicious as is but I guess that’s not fair. So, here goes:
The headline accompanies a story by Chronicle sports columnist Scott Ostler who’s delivered a eulogy of sorts for a “great American sports institution …facing extinction”: the locker room and clubhouse interview.
Yes, because of coronavirus safety concerns, it appears those interviews will be no more. In his column, Ostler then details a few of his more memorable locker room interviews and the players and coaches he’s talked to. It’s a fun story and you don’t have to be a sports fan to get a laugh or two.
But oh, it’s the headline that’s still got me giggling. You may recall I covered organized crime as a reporter. I thank my lucky stars I never interviewed any of those guys naked! That would not have been a pretty sight. Oh, no, it would not have been!
That’s all I’ve got for Day 95. Have a good weekend. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
Tell us one or two of your tales from your days of reporting on organized crime, Karen!
Hummm … I’ll think about some I can share. I did tell one story on my Muddling blog in the story “Bumping Shoulders with Celebrities.” Did you see it? Here’s the link: https://muddling.me/bumping-shoulders-with-celebrities/.
