If the first few days of the New Year there are many indications 2002 could turn out to be much more than simply a palindromic delight. The seismic rumblings out of Gainesville, Florida yesterday overshadowed the Category Five Hurricane that swept from California to Nebraska on Thursday. The totally unexpected resignation by Steve Spurrier as Gator football coach would easily have overshadowed such an action by the governor of the state, and perhaps even that of the governor's brother. It has been front-page news across Florida for two days now, and local television news has been overrun by this story from the world of sport.
