A lot of people just don't understand things about the newspaper business such as deadlines and small worries like timeliness and space restrictions.
Rather than getting into that, I'm going a different direction.
Moving on - amazing things have been done before in sports and perhaps you might have seen it.
How about Christian Laettner and Duke two decades ago bringing Kentucky fans to their knees crying?
Chris Webber, seriously, no timeouts? Come on man!
But, I knew Juwan Howard's little son back in those days long before he grew up to be a star basketball player who is redshirting this year at the University of Detroit following his transfer from Western Michigan after his freshman year.
Anyway, long ago - at least 1999 is long enough ago for me - I remember watching Parkersburg Catholic rally past Valley Fayette to win the Class A state basketball title, 61-58.
Of course, at that time current Parkersburg High School head boys hoops coach Jeff Mennillo was the head man for the Crusaders.
Although I won't be at tonight's PHS game against George Washington inside Memorial Fieldhouse, it should be well worth the price of admission.
Before I get too far along, I'd like to say I've watched a lot of basketball this year and at times most of it has been pretty entertaining.
However, what ever happened to the jump shot from short or medium range where the player uses a soft touch to kiss it off the glass? The top corner of the square, anyone?
Anymore these days, one could say they never really see it.
Let me be the first to say, though, Parkersburg guard Devin Hoehn comes up with some pretty good runners.
He also has a knock-down crossover for those who pay attention.
Even though PHS will be playing next Tuesday no matter what transpires this evening, it just doesn't seem fitting a group of Patriots would give the PHS seniors a loss in what then would be their last home game, but the red and white are ranked underdogs.
Something tells me it's somehow, some way, perhaps a little bit on the slight of possible, PHS and coach Mennillo's team could win a few more games and find themselves playing for a state title.
The last state title at PHS came back in 1970 and the last time the Big Reds even made the final game of the season was in 1973.
I could see it now if somehow PHS stood atop the field as the best big school basketball team - Magnolia beat the triple-A state champions! Yes, they probably would print T-shirts!
"As a coach you're never happy," admitted Mennillo. "There's always one more thing you want to do better. I feel like we need to take better shots sometimes. I feel like we need to slow down a little bit sometimes.
"Those are just things we kind of have to get better at, but all things equal I feel like you want to be playing your best basketball right now and I feel like we are playing our best basketball right now."
