Well THAT'S a bloody practical answer.

Lou slams down the receiver
Glen: Heh, heh, the folks on the HF boards'll love that one. Let me sign on under my pseudonym Son of Steinbrenner and tell 'em.
Glen is interrupted in the middle of typing his post by the phone ringing again
Lou: Hey Glen, you jerk. I just called St. Louis. After some dickering, they talked me up to a first and we agreed. Now I'm not screwed cap-wise anymore - and you missed out at a chance for my #1 next year. Nyah, nyah yourself.
Glen swallows his cigar.
The sad part is that I don't see Lou even bothering to gloat by phone. I expect he'd light up a cigar of his own, put his feet on his desk, drink a scotch, and imagine Sather's apoplexy when he, Sather, reads the story in next day's Larry Brooks column.
