Every writer and every editor out there messes up at some point.
You think something looks fine and dandy and you send it off to get published…only to realize a little bit later on that YOU TOTALLY BLEW IT.
And you’re about to see some real beauties from sports writers, ladies and gentlemen.
And we sincerely hope you’ve never let a headline like any of these slip out into the world, either in print or on the Internet.
Let’s take a look at the evidence…and try not to cringe too hard.
1. Not a good look.
You guys let this get out there?!?!
2. This did not turn out very well.
I hope they get that taken care of.
3. Totally inappropriate!
Where’s the editor?!?!
4. This just makes me sad.
Let’s have a moment of silence…
5. I think this is a good idea.
And I hope you’re on our side.
6. Good for the hooker!
Well, wait a second…
7. He’s a great kid.
Oh…wait a second…
8. You missed a letter there…
One letter can make a big difference.
9. Well, that’s nice.
I don’t even think I need to read the story now.
10. The man is a champion in all areas.
And we salute him!
11. A sad, sad story.
12. The big unit!
One more time!
13. That’s a relief.
What are some ridiculous headlines you’ve seen that made you do a double-take?
