From the front of the official Boston Red Sox website

John Burkett started out red-hot last season, winning his first seven decisions, but the dog days of summer caught up with the veteran right-hander and he finished 13-8. The prideful, confident competitor doesn't see any reason why he won't bounce back in 2003.

I'm guessing (hoping) that the author of this doesn't know what "prideful" means. Because, if he does, he should find another line of work besides "team flack." Why do people try to go for the $0.50 word, when the $0.05 word will do just as well--or even better?
