glad I don't have to write sports headlines #11 etc.

from a couple nights ago, not too bad but still...


but! more interesting than puns, is that the Blackhawks @ Sharks game tonight, heavily hyped with 2 of the 5 featured stories earlier in the day previewing the game, had this headline minutes after the game, referencing Troy Brouwer's game-winning goal:


and I don't think even an hour later, it'd changed to this (I came back to the site when I knew the standings would all be updated. note all the titles at the bottom are the same):


I know things might change on the site as they go from breaking news to a full game recap with highlights, but it's unusual to change like that. regardless...a terrific win for the Hawks.

Nice of NHL.com to use an updated picture for the Sabres. Ales Kotalik isn't even on the team anymore!

I think the same people who write the NHL.com headlines also named the iPad.

Maybe they changed it since Brouwer isn't in the photo with the bad pun. Given Shelby's comment it looks like someone has been having issues choosing appropriate pictures. I like the last one better anyway.

Heh...yeah, I did notice an absence of the actual Brouwer in that shot. (Every Hawks Twitterer/blogger went with "Brouwer Power," looks like.)

I wouldn't have noticed the Kotalik gaffe, thanks! Worst I saw this season was when Phil Kessel was one of the 3 Stars in a Leafs game and his shot was still in a Bruins jersey...
