Bad headline reading of the day

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by sirvaliantbrown, May 18, 2009.

  1. From ESPN's news sidebar: "Magic stop defending champ Celts in Game 7."

    My first thought: "When were they defending them? Why would they defend their opponents?"
    My second thought: "Oh. They're not talking about, you know, defending them in the media - they mean defending them on the court. But what do they mean when they say the Magic 'stopped defending' the Celtics in Game 7? Their D was great tonight!"
    My third thought: "Oh."

    That is all.

    Um, if the Magic stop defending them, wouldn't that make it easier for the Celts to score? Hell, even I can make a layup if no one guards me.
