Broward's Brombacher pitches perfect game for Florida Gators

GAINESVILLE -- Before we begin another day of overanalyzing Urban Meyer's WWF smack down of now famous and soon to be First Amendment hero/martyr/saint Jeremy Fowler of the Orlando Sentinel, let's take a moment to point out some news that actually means something. That's right, folks, Stephanie Brombacher of the Florida Gators softball team pitched a perfect game on Thursday night.

The Plantation American Heritage grad faced 15 batters and sat them all down in a five-inning, 10-0 victory against South Florida. Brombacher's performance comes at an important time for 13th-ranked Florida (21-3, 4-1 SEC). The Gators travel to Tuscaloosa, Ala., this weekend for a three-game series against the fifth-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide (22-7). Saturday's 2:30 p.m. game will be on ESPNU. Two wins against Alabama would likely move Florida into second place in the Southeastern Conference (behind LSU).

Brombacher (17-3) needed just 56 pitches to retire her 15 batters on Thursday. It was the first perfect game for a Florida pitcher in six years. The junior right-hander struck out five USF Bulls to give her 116 strikeouts on the season.

I would like to congratulate Stephanie and extend a open invitation to Club Basement for Friday's special...Turkeyloaf.

Go 'canes!

Joe -- any news from the practice facilities? Injuries, depth matters, outstanding performances, disappointing performances?

maybe urbin should stop worry about his RESUME and maybe teach his kids how to deal with the media and maybe teaching his kids how to be ADULTS.
What a teaching moment; someone is just doing thier job and he wants to go fight him.


We'll be updating the blog after practice. (And providing live Twitter updates during practice if I can get my BlackBerry to work properly).

Are you hurricane pansies still referring to this reporter thing? Give me a break! Screw the media and the rest of the side-line standers. You could only hope in your wildest dreams for this kind of toughness on the field.

You mean like Timmy crying his eyes out and Urban having A nervous breakdown kind of toughness. No thanks!

Spoken like A true racist gator redneck!

Um yeah...I am african american, try again homie...

Graham is a good bet to be the first Hurricane taken in April’s draft. Analysts have Graham going anywhere from the second to fourth rounds.

Played one year and is your best draft prospect????? Laughable.

Glory days are gone losers. ACC chumps.
