    Is this a media assignment or is Short going on his own dime? If it's an assignment, doesn't The Telegram have anyone on staff who likes sports or at least knows something about them? If they do, they should have sent him/her instead of Short.

    Hopefully he'll do a better job at the Olympics than he's doing with the local townie sports scene....the money must be good as this event is happening far west of the overpass.
