Headline choices

Getting a head: The Miami Herald recently ran this headline -- Miami Dolphins flounder in red zone. Normally I don't like the use of flounder; founder is usually the correct choice. Still, the Dolphins have both foundered and flopped around inside opponents' 20-yard lines, so I think flounder works fine here.

Besides, flounder and dolphins seem to go together. So do carp and crappie.
