Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The sport is basketball

Today's example of absentminded journalism comes from Pat Dooley at The Gainesville Sun.

Carolyn Peck, who coached Florida's women to a 69-74 record in five seasons, was relieved of her duties on Monday effective at the end of the year.

Peck will receive a buyout of approximately $300,000 because she had a year remaining on her contract.

“I love the University of Florida,” Peck said at a news conference. “The reason the University of Florida athletics ranks with the best in the nation is that Jeremy Foley has the guts to make the tough decisions.”
You would think that in an article that is only 82 words long Mr. Dooley could find room for the sport Ms. Peck coached. It was basketball and I only discovered it by doing a Google search.

Back to Sports Journalism 101 with you Pat Dooley.

One last note, I fine Ms. Peck's attitude in regards to her firing as admirable. No complaining or whining, just seeing it as a justified decision by the school. TFM wishes Carolyn Peck good luck in her future endeavors.
