"When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that."

Anthony Mackie and Tavis Smiley talking about black people and movies. Really, really good. This guy is swiftly becoming a favorite. 

Interesting interview. Not as fun as Jimmy Fallon but nice to hear him speaking passionately about people of color in Hollywood. You really can’t rely on someone else to tell your story for you.

I’ve been busy this week.

Last week, I started planning these pages, previewing the men’s hoops season for the Big Ten and Big East, two conferences with teams covered by the Green Bay Press-Gazette. When I told my boss about it, though, he enlisted me to do a page for each of the seven major conferences.

The pages all use a USA Today Sports feature at the top (nearly all of which were 40-plus inches long and in serious need of trimming to fit on the page), then USATS’s projections for conference rankings, players of the year, preseason all-conference teams and five games to watch. The “by the numbers” portion is my only contribution to the content of each page.

These were pretty mammoth projects to turn around so tightly, and, as always, I wish I’d had more time to polish the finish products, but they were fun to put together.

Sometimes I get to do two covers in a night.

Sometimes.

Take two:

The Packers aren’t good on days I’m responsible for Packers coverage. Unfortunately for them, that means they’ll go something like 3-13. Sorry, y’all.

This week, the process was really smooth. We hit deadlines, pages went out without a hitch, and most of them even turned out as well or better than I’d hoped based on prototypes. The cover was a challenge (that photo is real busy), but I thought it turned out OK; the By The Numbers page is pretty static, and the other four pages not shown here are as well, but they all served their purpose; and Our Take got fixed, which makes me happy.

Hopefully they’re all even better in week five.

Finally, after weeks of planning, prototyping, doing and redoing, the first Section Formerly Known as Packers Final went out the door.

It was eight pages, the start of the A section for the Press-Gazette, and it was every bit as challenging as I expected. The first one is always the toughest, though. Right?

I hope so.

Regardless, here it is. Not all of the pages turned out like I’d hoped (looking at you, OUR TAKE), some of them will likely look a little different from now on (still you, OUR TAKE), and some of these aren’t even that interesting (OTHER TAKE), but they got sent out the door all the same. (Disclaimer: Of these eight pages, only four — the cover, the analysis, the other take and the images pages — ran in color, the rest in black-and-white. Because I love you guys, and because our system works in weird ways sometimes, I present them to you in full color here.)

On to week two.
