The [Tuesday] Papers

"Hossa missed a mid-period shot at a net that was so open it made a 7-Eleven store seem closed by comparison," Rick Telander writes for the Sun-Times.

Okay, that's not quite how you write a line like that. The comparison ought to be inherent without a need to point out that you're making a comparison. So:

" . . . a net more open than a 7-Eleven."

" . . . a net open like a 7-Eleven at bar time."

" . . . a net more open than a cash register at 7-Eleven during a robbery."

" . . . a net more open than an alderman's hands right before the payoff for facilitating a zoning change for a new 7-Eleven."

You get the idea.
