    Okay, here’s the story. My boss (the sports editor) and a columnist at my paper decide to trek across the country to cover the Winthrop basketball team playing in Spokane, Wash. A few things you should know: 1.) my boss hates flying, 2.) they thought this would be “kinda cool” and 3.) ever since the company I work for bought another company, we’ve been too cheap to actually spend money on anything.

    So off they go, leave on Tuesday and get there Thursday. Along the way, they wrote blogs and columns talking about the trip, etc. Well, once they got there, they became the story. Not the team, oh no, but my boss and the columnist. TV stations are lined up to interview them, radio shows are having them on, etc. And the one fucking thing they could say to people who have no idea what we’re like is: “We’re hungry. They don’t have grits here.” I shit you not. Grits.

    Anyway, in case anyone’s interested in seeing these buffoons (I actually like the columnist, though), here’s the link to that video. Grits. Could have said anything else and they went with grits.

    How is their travel interesting enough to catch that attention? I don’t get it. Oh, is he using an iBook or a Macbook (your editor).

    I’m pretty sure it’s a Macbook, although I’m not 100 percent sure. And to answer your question, I’m not really sure why their trip became such big news.
