The Most Depressing Newsroom Ever

No daylight. Not enough chairs. Not enough tables. No wireless. The only televisions to watch the on field action are in the back of the room facing away from the tables. A dozen or so journalists (this one included) are sitting on the just-barely-not-bare-concrete floor.

The permanent label on the door outside this field level “Media Filing Center” suggests that on game days, the space is used as a “Photographer’s Workroom,” but I can attest it doesn’t look all that different from a room just down the hall where they garage Mile High’s groundskeeping equipment.

I must say, the lack of creature comforts certainly encourage speedy filing. Take note, Arianna.
