Based on real events from last night. Filming football games takes a lot of mettle, I assure you. Especially when it’s 40 degrees and windy.

Genre: Almost Nonfiction
Word Count: 100
The football stadium thrums with life. Our video feed, however, does not.
“We’re live in five minutes, people. Pick up the pace.” My boss tenses over his keyboard like a turtle under attack. The cold inside comes his temper.
“Page?” Someone asks. “Did we forget her?”
“Crap,” my boss said. “She had our video cable.”
“I’m right here,” Page said.
“No, I mean the cable.”
“I guess I’m able,” Page says, chewing her lip. “I signed up for this, didn’t I?”
“The video cable.”
The crowd outside roars. Football must be a huge deal to some people.
Boy, when it rains it really pours doesn’t it? It always seems like whenever I actually have free time, there’s a thousand new things that I discover that come crawling out of the ground like zombies. The football filming I referenced in the story is one such 12 hour roadblock/zombie.
Good luck, you brave writer folk!
