Confession of Wrongness
So, originally I was going to tear this guy a new one because I was convinced that “decommitted” was a concocted word that only sports writers use when they can’t think of the proper word.
Kinda like when I use the word “wonk” when I’m at a stalemate with the dictionary.
Before I started my public shaming of this former television reporter turned Editor-in-Chief of a local college’s newspaper (I don’t understand it; I guess the advisor can also run the paper), I decided to double-check “decommitted.”
I googled it and turns out there is an actual definition for it.
It means “to withdraw from a commitment.”
I’m really glad I didn’t try and embarrass that guy because it would’ve blown up in my face and I would’ve been extremely embarrassed.
