A line from Michael Miner's Hot Type column in this week's Chicago Reader. "Mariotti and Telander" are Jay Mariotti and Rick Telander, lead sports columnists #1 and #1A at the Chicago Sun-Times.
"This wasn't the first time. I've been told of a Bulls playoff game in Washington several years ago when Mariotti and Telander screamed at each other so loudly and publicly that Vice President Al Gore and his Secret Service detail stopped to watch."
That made me laugh for a long, long time.
