The latest: The general manager who recently took over is out, so he tells me. Further, the rumblings are that another “shake-up” in the works. So I called the club’s owner, John Janda, looking for answers.
This is exactly how the phone call went:
“This is Mike from The Fresno Bee …”
“Why do I want to talk to you?”
“If you are a spin doctor, I don’t want to talk to you. I’m going to do something drastic and you will hear about it.”
Wow. Not that I’ve never gotten hung up on before — but as far as characters go, Rome and Granite Park seem to have a never-ending supply. Janda eventually called me back and we had a more pleasant chat, though still totally unproductive. He didn’t hang up on me, but he also wouldn’t tell me what “drastic” change he was planning. So I thought it would be fun if we all guessed.
