San Francisco, CA - Journalist Paul Dennis admitted that he lingered and debated over the appropriate adjective that would accurately describe Angel Di Maria's performance against Chile in Argentina's 2-1 win.
"It's difficult," stated Dennis to The Nutmeg News. "I had an entire post game recap all written up in a typical boilerplate fashion that dictates exactly who did what and how, but I'm was lingering upon my decision as to the appropriate adjective to describe Di Maria's performance. This situation really offers me the only opportunity to stray away from my typically boilerplate post game recap."
According to inside sources at the stadium press box, Dennis fluctuated between ebullient, effervescent, emotive, ardent, electrifying, impassioned and incandescent as descriptive words to use in an otherwise utterly boring post-game recap.
"It was a toss up, and this was the only thing that would separate my piece from any other post game piece written in the death throws of the game while everyone is trying to hurriedly finish their outlines in the press box and get back to the hotel to spend their per diem on gin at the bar."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as everyone reading Mr Dennis' piece glosses over the adjective after checking out of his story after one sentence and forgetting the recap was even open in their browser.
