Do we even have a sports department at the paper? Here it is — nothing about the Olympics, nothing going on. It’s just like they don’t even exist. Don’t even have a medal total. But they got a big old article about Jeff Gordon winning a rain-shortened race and everything else. I mean this is really stupid. Really crazy that we got to spend the money for a Washington paper and then we got to spend money for another paper to find out what’s going on in the sports department. I guess you need to hire some new people or find some different writers for the sports department. That would be really greatly appreciated other than a half a page. There’s more going on than high school sports that are not even going on right now. Thank you.
