Someone's Getting Fired at AP Sports

I just got an email forward saying, "The AP Sports desk accidentally emailed out there [sic] sports rolodex today to other newsies."

The email then contains a list of over 700 phone numbers for sports figures, including athletes like Kareem Abdul-Jabar, Yogi Berra and Roger Clemens. The list also has phone numbers for Commissioners Gary Bettman, Paul Tagliabue and Bud Selig. That's just the beginning. There are over 700 phone numbers.

From what I can tell, these numbers are legit, and the AP is going to have to fire someone. Too bad, Butch. Too bad.
