Running Over 'Gator Leads to Transfer

Long-time Oklahoma City AP staffer J. Pat Carter is heading south - way south.

"After doing what few other sports shooters have done during Spring Training," Carter told Sports Shooter, "I ran over an alligator out on Alligator Alley late one night, as I returned from dinner in Miami to Fort Myers to continue covering the Rangers Red Sox, and Twins.

"That five-foot gator was like a large speed bump at 80 mph. No, I did not stop, first those driving like maniacs. It was late at night. And if I did not kill that gator, it would be pissed as hell!"

Carter will be moving to the AP's South Florida Bureau in Miami.

"Anyway, I knew it was time to go to Miami," Carter said, "Mark Duncan, a fellow AP staffer, suggested I am trading tornadoes for hurricanes --- not the football team."

Carter ended his note with this: "Now all I have to do is convince my wife that inspecting all those bikinis on South Beach is part of my job."
