    yeah, well, here's another: Sportsline on Saturday night, Florida beats South Carolina, Sportsline's hed is:

    Tao of Steve

    ..........huh? Spurrier's team lost. Had it won, decent hed. But Gamecocks lost, so how is "Tao of Steve" relevant to anything about that game result?

    Tao of Steve?

    The tao didn't come off a winner, so you can't write that.

    Anything is better. Even "Gators win."

    Maybe I'm a clueless idiot -- OK, that's quite likely, actually -- but I don't get it. How is Tao of Steve a decent headline if SC won? Does that mean something?
