business news in context, analysis with attitude

Zach Johnson, a virtually unknown 31-year golfer from Iowa who was ranked 56th in the world, won the 2007 Masters Golf Tournament.
KC's View:
We made an enormous mistake – an omission, actually – last week in this space on MNB.

On Tuesday, we reported that the Florida Gators defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes 84-75 to win the NCAA men’s basketball national championship for the second year in a row.

Which was accurate.

But then, we received the follow email on Thursday:

It's a well-known fact that once baseball season starts, you're a happy guy and MNB Sports Desk will be busy reporting. Never quite understood the connection to the grocery industry, but I often enjoy your musings about non-business stuff.

However, while you're spending a little extra time with Mrs. Content Guy this weekend, perhaps it will become evident that the Sports Desk reported on the results of the NCAA Men's Basketball Finals, but somehow neglected to cover the results of the Women's Final. Surely an oversight on your part (Tennessee beat Rutgers, btw).


It was an oversight, but an inexcusable one – not least because we’ve used this platform on numerous occasions to try to raise people’s consciousness about business issues related to women. We have a 12-year-old daughter, and she’s our touchstone for all these kinds of stories. In this case, we blew it.

It’s a week late, but here it is:

In the NCAA Women’s Basketball Finals, the Tennessee Lady Vols defeated Rutgers 59-46 to claim a seventh national championship.
