On Friday evening, I saw this tweet from fellow journo Roger Carroll:
Today’s best sports story: Vermont high school game called on account of bear.

(Tell me that isn’t the most Vermont reason for calling a sports game.)
Turns out it was in our coverage area — the games affected were a baseball and softball match between Oxbow High, which is one of our schools, and Blue Mountain Union High. The games — and the bear — were at Blue Mountain.
Our sports guys made some phone calls and, thankfully, photographs soon followed.

Meanwhile, in the office, bear puns also were made in abundance, because duh. I’d share some, but they’re bearly worth repeating. 😀
