Randy Wolf, Closet NBC Fan

Murray Chass of the New York Times wrote an interesting sidebar on Randy Wolf, who was not as studious as he appeared to be.

Time for a TV Break

Randy Wolf sat at his locker in the visiting clubhouse at City of Palms Park here. He wore earphones and was intensely focused on the screen on his computer, which rested on an adjacent chair. A reporter who wanted to talk to Wolf, a Dodgers pitcher, waited nearby but kept his distance out of respect for a man at work, preparing to pitch against the Red Sox.

After about half an hour, Wolf removed the earphones, rose from his chair and headed across the clubhouse. The reporter intercepted him and said, “I wanted to ask you a question, but I didn’t want to interrupt you while you were studying the hitters.”

“I wasn’t studying hitters,” Wolf said. “I was watching ‘Heroes.’ ”

Save the Dodgers, Randy; save the world.
