It was halftime of the Cincinnati vs. West Virginia football game at Paul Brown Stadium last November.
I was the Enquirer’s sidebar guy that day, meaning I’d probably be writing some sort of Mountaineers’ sidebar if West Virginia won.
I looked at my watch. The Bearcats were trailing the Mountaineers, 17-7, and UC quarterback Zach Collaros had been knocked out of the game with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury in the second quarter.
I considered my lot: Stay and not miss any of the game action, or walk the however many blocks uptown to the Public Library and catch Greg Cook’s football presentation to whomever showed up, and get back to the college l game sometime late in the third quarter.
