A not-so-merry merry-go-round

By Debra Dobbins

At first I didn’t understand this headline today, because I don’t pay much attention to football.

I do know, though, the importance of quarterbacks, so slowly the word “carousel” began to make sense.

A carousel is also known as a merry-go-round. People jump on and off a merry-go-round as the spirit moves them. The “hed” writer used carousel to suggest that many football teams are experiencing frequent changes in this vital position.

To read the entire story, see today’s print edition or e-edition of The Daily Sentinel. BTW, the word “myriad” means “a great many” in the caption below.
