Highs and lows

TONY DUNGY: He went out with the same class and dignity he displayed in his six years as Bucs coach. And regardless of the past few playoffs, he gave us one heck of a team, something Tampa Bay had only a couple of times in the preceding 20 seasons.

MICHELLE KWAN: Many questioned the figure skater's judgment when she decided to prepare for the Olympics without a coach. Her performance at the U.S. nationals indicates she knows exactly what she's doing.


THE GLAZERS: Let's review: They fired the winningest coach in Bucs history, courted but were jilted again by one of the best coaches in NFL history, and ignored a chance to land one of the best and most offensive-minded coaches in college history who actually would have loved to come here (unlike a certain smelly Tuna). This lesson in how to run an NFL franchise brought to you by Enron.

THE NFL: It's commendable the league has players recognizing the U.S. military in commercials, but the language of the spots has players "fighting for the playoffs" and military personnel "fighting for our freedom," which creates too much of a parallel between a game and war.
