This is so sweet. While I was looking through my mom’s “sent items” in her Yahoo! mail account, I found an email she sent to Pat Dooley, the long-time sportswriter for the Gainesville Sun.
The subject line is “Florida/FSU Editorial Cartoon”:
Dear Mr. Dooley,
A friend of mine just told me about the wonderful cartoon that accompanied your article about the UF/FSU game and the incompetency of the ACC officials.
I was wondering if there is any way I can get a copy of that cartoon to send to my son in Los Angeles. He’s a major Gator fan, and we’re on the phone together during every game!
I went to the Sun website, but I couldn’t figure out a way to pull up the cartoon. I really sounds like a classic and I would love to see it myself as well as to share it with my two Gators.
Thanks, have a great week!
I don’t think he ever replied, but just the fact that she wrote that email makes me want to cry.
