When I covered Luke Fickell's pressers in 2011 (how far we've come), I was eating at the little luncheon they provide and over my eats I heard the majestic voice of Keels. Recognized it without even seeing him. Dude has such a boss voice, it's hard for me to envision anybody else calling the game on the radio.

My cats would never be exiled to their own house/apartment. My cats — all 3,000 of them — would live in harmony inside my compound.

Yeah 11W is weird. It's a blog, but a lot of connotations of that word don't fit the site. Not many blogs have paid journalists on the roster.

I do not consider myself a journalist. Blogger, Mr. Big Dick Associate Editor, Late to Lunch.... anything works for me.

I had "Panhandles" in original copy then, when editing, I thought I goofed it and changed it. (I don't read re-read quotes during editing usually because those typos are on somebody else's jacket. I am extremely good at my job.)

Panhandles isn't as cool as Panhandlers — who wants to fight a homeless person? Not me — but I think it's still a cool name nonetheless.

Thank you for the correction, Lincoln, and more importantly, the history lesson.

A hot dog is decidedly not a sandwich. A sandwich's bun/bread comes in two parts. Thus, a hot dog, bratwurst, etc. etc. is not a sandwich.
