With the Turkey Bowl only 3 months away things are beginning to take shape at XPFL head quarters regarding the 2003 game. Plans are underway to get the field in shape days before the big game with the XPFL grounds crew coming to work on the field several days prior to the game. Volunteers are expected to take off of their regular jobs to assist with field layout, placement of the broadcast booth and sideline benches not to mention the superstructure for the sound system. A host of new sponsors will be welcomed by the broadcast crew this year and listeners will enjoy the clever commercials planned for the broadcast which boasts of the highest ever fees for a 30 second spot. On the field audio problems that plagued TB III have been tracked down to a temperature problem with radio mics and the audio experts assure XPFL officials that this will not happen again this year. Team's rosters can never be finalized until game day with trades taking place even just the week prior to the big game. So reporting on teams and guessing who will be the stronger is indeed risky business for a sports reporter. To be politically correct and begin the holiday season one of the teams even boasts that a player is to be flown in from Turkey for the Turkey Bowl. A new segment for the half time show this year promises to offer some added entertainment with Red and Blue Cheerleaders competing against each other in an obstacle course as teams to see who the best and most agile Cheerleaders are. And of course if all that weren't enough there will be 60 minutes of full contact football to watch between the Red Gobblers and the Blue Jell-O's. Be sure to plan your Thanksgiving Day to attend TB IV, it's sure to be the game that will be talked about all year. Oh and by the way I guess some Packer team or something is playing the same day but they chose to play early and be done before the TB IV kickoff at 2PM thereby insuring them an audience.
This week there is a new sports article by S. Lyle OConnor on the Sports page and S. Lyle asks that he would enjoy some feed back either positive or negative if anyone cares to write to him he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org The Birthday page has also been updated for August. That's all the news that is news, see ya.

JOHN POQUETTE HAS HEART ATTACK WHILE AWAY FROM HOME
Most of us don't think about it when we leave our home but we could be heading for medical problems while away. This is just what happened to John Poquette while a guest in Utah. Poquette had been having chest pains over the last couple months but not on the grand scale he did on August 8th this year. All he remembers is having chest pains then a big gap followed by people asking him if he was all right while lying on the floor. As it turned out there was blockage in his arteries, some as much as 90% and three stints were put in and more procedures will have to be done at a later date. It is unknown if there is any permanent damage in what Poquette termed as a "small heart attack". Further news on this story will be posted when we get it.
Peter Poquette has a new friend he met in Clarksville and her name is Cheryle. I am told the e on the end of the name is supposed to be there on purpose and distinguishes her from other Cheryl's. Lately Peter has been taking a page out of Brittany's book what with a new girl friend every time we turn around. Brittany is however with the same boy, Justin, now for the last two weeks and there is no report of a breakup looming just yet. Even though this one seems to be hanging on a bit longer then the previous three my money is still on him winding up on the broken heart pile. We will bring you the story when it happens.
An apology for a late newsletter this week, the offices of THE KAT AND MICK REPORT are littered with building materials as the building is being refurbished. We leave you with a poem written by Sarah Poquette, that's all the news that is news, see ya.
