Deadspin has a fun little segment going on right now titled “Sportswriters: Who’s The Grossest Or Most Obnoxious Person You’ve Encountered In The Press Box? Share Your Stories.” It goes like this — Deadspin commenters tell stories about boorish behavior from other sports journalists, and the readers get to find out that Dick Vitale is actually a total jerkwad and Rick Reilly lied down (or “LAYS DOWN,” as the commenter put it) on the couch in the Giants’ clubhouse back in 2002.

While procrastinating I read some of the stories, and one in particular caught my eye for a few reasons: the source, the location and the act that was described.

Tommy Craggs, the editor of Deadspin and a very talented writer, reminisces:

The mind boggles at what this illicit sports reporter (the prince of porno, not Craggs) was thinking. Forget doing something like this in public among a bunch of nosy people who are all curious about what everyone else is doing/saying/writing/consuming. I’ve never been in the Coliseum press box, but I can’t imagine that the WiFi connection back in ~2005 would’ve made it the optimal place to download anything. However, from Craggs’ description it seems that this was a pretty quick and effective operation. We’ll never know who this “local guy” was, but I guess we can rule out Susan Slusser … and Ratto.
