The subject line of today's email notice from the Philadelphia local-news
website Billy Penn:
Sixers ditch scandalized Colangelo; ISO Temple job training center; No more
Potter festival

The headline and beginning of the relevant article:*
*Sixers finally ditch Colangelo, but there’s more work to be done*
*One Colangelo down, one to go.*

On Thursday the Sixers finally parted ways with Bryan Colangelo, their
embattled president of basketball operations, over a scandal having to do
with anonymous Twitter accounts ostensibly run by his wife. (Colangelo's
statement on the topic tossed his spouse straight under the bus.)

This usage doesn't appear in the story, or in reference to it elsewhere on
the website.
