Yes, my sooper sekrit superhero identity is Research Girl.

So, one of the profs in our unit (Andy) used to help run the Patriots. He, another prof (Jim), and Prof.B. were standing in front of my desk, and Prof.B. was asking if Andy had read the Globe today and how he had to read this article on Vinatieri and Andy was asking who wrote it and of course Prof.B. doesn't pay attention to that 'cause he doesn't know the writers like Andy does.

Now, I can't even spell Vinatieri, but being me of course I had to find the article. boston.com wasn't giving it to me, I GoogleNewsed, and today's Boston Globe was the top link. So I said, "The Jackie MacMullan article?" as the printer was sending out two Printer Friendly copies.

Jim said, "This has to be a setup. No one is that efficient."
I protested that I never read the Sports Page and that I just got curious listening to them. (Which I know sounds ridiculous, but those who know me know it is SO TRUE for me.)
Prof.B. said something about how I could anticipate what was needed -- which prompted Andy to ask for the notes from the meeting they were about to have in advance :)

Yeah, I'm over my earlier rage at Prof.B. (Especially since the rage-inducing situation got resolved fairly easily.)

[P.S. Boston.com totally has a Del.icio.us embed. Wow.]
