What is the trick to seeing what they are talking about?
Indeed, read through that whole conversation a bit ago...
For a quick review, a guy for the Humboldt Independent (newspaper) showed up to the press box wearing a Hawkeye jersey. Of course the press box is supposed to be a neutral area with no cheering, etc. There were quite a few other press guys having some fun at his expense via twitter using the #pressboxjersey hashtag.
(for those who aren't inclined.. start at the very bottom and read up.)
The Humboldt Independent 'correspondent' wore his squawk jersey to the press box.
Just as an observer, I can't stop laughing at the guy.
As a journalism student who hopes to be in that press box someday soon, I can't stop shaking my head at his lack of knowledge and professionalism.
What an idiot! Not for the jersey, but just look at that stupid blue hat he's wearing.
EVERYONE knows that when you're rocking your Hawkeye jersey in the Jack Trice Stadium pressbox you're supposed to top off the outfit with a giant foam ear of corn, not a freakin' Cubs hat. Amateur.
WWZaPD: What Would Zabel and Podolak Do?
The Humboldt Independent does have a website and e-mail address. I guess they probably have the e-mail address in case someone wishes to contact them, maybe because they have some feedback or something.
Give him a break for cryin out loud - poor bastard probably has to work the closing shift at Buffalo Wild Wings!
Ah the Humboldt Independent- You know how you can tell its a small time paper? If you get a speeding ticket in Humboldt County your name appears in its margins. Great for nosy neighbors and relatives to keep up on your driving habits.
Is that dork like 17 yrs old?
When I sat in the Press Box I wore Iowa State.... Nobody made fun of me. I think? :wideeyed:
