FRIDAY QUICK HITS
*A large majority of Bay Area TV News photographers are praying that the Warriors lose; why? Because of the shitload amount of work and logistics involved in covering the parade; how do I know this? A veteran newsperson with loads of information told me. The camera people also love their off time and this parade business involves hours and hours of prep work; it's not only the Warriors, they feel the same way about the Giants too.
I see their anguish but come on guys, it's not as if you're lifting anything. (wink)
*KGO TV's Michael Finney has a small army staff in his quality "7 On Your Side" business; lots and lots of staffers including 3 full-time producers; normally, I could have a problem here but A. Finney is a solid Consumer Anchor, and B. A really good guy too therefore, go get 'em Mike.
*I am now fully aware there's no Arby's in Union City, helllllllllo Newark; the ghost of Lloyd Lindsay Young has walked into the building.
*In case you're interested, Pam Moore can't stand Steve Aveson but Pam has to eat you know.
*Every Friday around 6ish, if you ever wanted to see some really cool TV people here get massively drunk, quietly, then hit up Grumpy's kitty corner to both KPIX and KGO-TV. Just don't go batty over anything, hey they're allowed to get fucked up just like the rest of us.
*Hey asshole, uh, 'scuse me, Mark Matthews.
*Dear Dave Clark of KTVU: Everybody says you're really a good guy so if that's the case, time for moi to reevaluate.
*Sal Castaneda on the other hand? C'mon Sal, really?
*Then again at least Sal isn't Mark Ibanez. Or, as some call him, "Pete's lifter."
FINALLY, hang in there great man.
