Reporters from around the country are in San Francisco this week covering the World Series and that means the eyes of the nation are on us.

If the reporter from our sister station in Dallas is any indication, the country thinks we are potheads.

Newy Scruggs from NBCDFW said during his live report that people next to him "are smoking weed."  The anchors then asked, "Is it legal there?" Ask that question again next week.

Scruggs didn't do any real trash talking, unless you consider saying Giants fans are high on pot.  He quickly added that we were "nice people," but said that was in part because we were "half buzzed out."

The anchors back in Dallas recommended Newy hold his breath.

Newy came back at the following newscast and went even further.  He claimed to have found the location of the pot smokers behind a rock on the banks of McCovey Cove and whined, "Police aren't even doing anything!" 

Newy sounded a little worried he might get high off the air, warning if he was a little jumpy in his next live report people would know why.
