No sweet music for Brittany Viola. The daughter of former major league baseball pitcher Frank Viola missed out on the 10-meter platform diving final at the London Olympics. Viola finished 15th in the semifinal Thursday with 300.50 points.â†µ
Frank Viola's nickname was "Sweet Music", which is mentioned later in the piece. That is a good thing to know, in case you thought the lede was merely a play on Brittany's last name, and weren't around in the late 1980s when Frank "Sweet Music" Viola ranked among our better hurlers of stitched spheroids.
