I guess the guys in the football section of ESPN are getting a little overworked. How else can you explain the headline of this article: Long on RESUTLS, short on style (sports.espn.go.com)

Or this little gem from this article Click Here (sports.espn.go.com)

Sorry Len, it was Elway who won back to back Super Bowl's, not Favre.

I agree that ESPN's lack of editing is funny/sad, but the dramatic irony is even funnier. If I were criticizing someone else's grammar, the first thing I would do was ensure that mine was correct.

Aha. I figured that the first response was going to be about something I did incorrectly. So I previewed it, corrected some errors, and hit submit.

Yeah, I suck at self-editing.
