4806 Update: 11/19

Throughout the semester, I must write a weekly post for credit in my Editing and Production class. Certain redundancies will occur between these “4806 Updates” and posts earlier in the week.

I woke up Saturday (11/13) morning and walked outside to grab the paper. As I opened the front door, I mouthed a silent thank you to Andrew Wamboldt through chattering teeth.

Andrew, you see, volunteered earlier in the week to take pictures at the Kansas State-Mizzou home game. At kickoff, the temperature on the field hovered around 32 degrees. You want to know the best thing about the press box? They keep it at a very comfortable 72.

The game represented a last stand for seniors, and Mizzou sent them off with an impressive victory over a threatening Wildcat team. I tried to start writing the story at halftime, but most of what I had written I scrapped after interviews.

I can’t say I’m altogether thrilled with my story. As a writer, I certainly have a ways to go figuring out the nuances of game-day reporting.

Nevertheless, this is my product and I stand by it. I just want to keep getting better.

Missouri Runs All Over Kansas State

  1. When you were an underclassman, you would have sold your soul to go down on the field at a MU football game!! You spoiled senior, shame on you.
