From the Pacific Daily News of Agana, Guam.

It's a brief story about a local baseball game. Here is how it ended:
The Giants [down 8-6] had the bases loaded with one out in the ninth inning when Pete Aguon singled in a run. Jamie Antone was gunned down at home, preventing the would-be tying run, and then Orandly Merlei was thrown out trying to advance to third for the final out of the game.

Wow. I hadn't expected to see a reference to the PDN anywhere. I lived on Guam for about a year back in 1969-1970.

Sheesh, I can't make it through a day without reading a Guamanian paper!

In the final week before my college graduation, I had two job offers for sportswriting: one in Scotts Bluff, Nebraska, and the other for the Pacific Daily News in Agana. After much deliberation, I was leaning toward the less remote outpost (you can guess which that was) when I got offered some part-time work from the Pasadena Star-News, and I leapt at that.

You should have held out for an interview in Agana at least.

Nope, couldn't swing it. The interview was over the phone. The rest was up to me.
