Headline critique

    In local Sr. baseball team called the Brewers wins third straight league championship

    My headline options:

    Three-peat Fermented
    Three-peat Brewed.

    My preference is the first one, but am I trying to be too creative and will I lose people with first headline?

    To be honest, neither one is great.

    Second is a bit better, though.

    I'd go with "Brewers tap third title" or something along those lines. (Which admittedly is pedestrian at best).

    Just trying for something quick and snappy. Tabloid style.

    Snappy, huh?

    How about, "Local senior baseball team called the Brewers wins third straight league championship"?

    Seriously, here's two punchers I came up with: "Triple fermented" (which might have more to do with cigars ... but I think you can do it with beer, as well) and "Three cheers"

    Sure. The SportsJournalists.com softball team can always use a light-hitting outfielder with no power.
