notes on government, sports and popular culture
Ted Vaden does some explaining
regarding the photo of Leah Willis accompanying the article on the Canes high stick
"The picture showed Willis in a bright red Hurricanes jersey picking up tickets at the RBC Center box office. Good picture to go with a good story.
"Problem is: Willis was not unhappy with the price increases, and for good reason. She works for Gale Force Holdings, the RBC Center operator. When the photograph was shot, before the Canes game Monday night against New Jersey, she was not buying but picking up tickets left for her at the window."
Just goes to show that getting the right shot is kind of like, uh, getting the right quote.......
