Holly McPeak — subject of a great lead

This is not a vain attempt of putting an athlete in a bikini on my blog.

Honest.

I had to post about this because I try to appreciate what I think is good writing, and the lead to the Associated Press brief about Holly McPeak’s retirement was classic stuff (unfortunately, there was no byline on the story, so I have no idea who wrote it):

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Pro beach volleyball star Holly McPeak is hanging up her bikini for good.

    As one who teaches writing and has a background in journalism, and who has followed beach volleyball and actually done a promotion with Holly, I also enjoyed that lead in the AP story and thank you for highlighting it for the appreciation of others who might not have seen it!
