Missed Connection

Sports information guy at small football school misprints phone number on news release, sends sportswriters scrambling to call a phone-sex line instead of the coach’s weekly news conference. Hilarity ensues:

When I dialed in, the voice on the other line said, “Hi sexy, you’ve reached the one-on-one fantasy line.” I gasped, hung up and figured I must have dialed the wrong number. So, I checked the UCF news release and dialed again, but I got the same phone sex hotline complete with offers I can’t really post on this blog.

What he didn’t mention was that he no doubt was worried for a minute there about what would happen when that call showed up on the company phone bill. Bean-counters just don’t have a sense of humor about that kind of thing.


Why the MSM Ignores Certain Stories

Short answer: When they seem like a waste of time. Example: the one now going around┬áthat wonders why journos haven’t checked Obama’s draft-registration status when the registration law specifies that unregistered people aren’t eligible for executive-branch jobs. Never mind that the Constitution spells out the eligibility threshold for president, nowhere mentions draft status and nowhere gives Congress the power to change the threshold without going through the amendment process. Really, is that so damn hard?
