The Missoulian has launched a new sports app for mobile devices to help area high school sports fans get all their coverage from one place.

But not all reporter gaffes show up in newsprint. And I had a doozy two weeks ago while working on a story about Columbia Falls girls AND boys basketball coach Cary Finberg. Luckily, Finny came to my rescue.
