    This could not have been an accident - - could it?

    Yeah. In most of your Beaver coverage, you're in and out in eight paragraphs.

    When I clicked the link, the headline was changed to "Bulldogs overcome illness, slaps Dusters 64-57" and, other than the horrible grammar, I couldn't figure out why there was a thread on it.

    So they changed it from a headline that is accurate and hilarious (but in poor taste) to one with a head bust. Bulldogs .... slaps Dusters ....
    Strike two ....

    This is a city that used to have three English-language newspapers.

    Now, there are two.

    The biggest one no longer has to try harder.

    Oh, and within a fairly small radius are the towns of both Hooker and Beaver.

    The high school girls basketball team in the paper's town? The Lady Redskins.

    So when did the papers merge? Last I knew, they were separate entities and I believe the rivalry was spirited.

    The up-start former-employee paper bought their old paper early in December.

    With our area schools trying to slip "Lady" in front of their nicknames, we get Lady Rams and Lady Redmen (gender confused?) and Lady Crimson Streaks (there's a visual I don't need).

    One of my teams played a state volleyball quarterfinal (nickname: Copper Kings) vs. a team called the "Lady Stags."
