So we're watching Around The Horn right now. The panelists today are Jay Mariotti, Tom Cowlishaw, Bob Ryan and Bill Plaschke. They've been blabbering on about the NBA Finals for about 10 minutes now. They are reporters, talking about events on their beat, or at least that's the conceit, right?

But we couldn't help but ask: Why isn't anybody actually in San Antonio? Mariotti appears to be there, but everyone else is just sitting in their newsrooms, lounging, screaming into a camera. Hey, guys: Game's in four hours! You're gonna have to hustle if you're gonna make it! There's reporting to do!
