Inappropriate even for a blog?

    Looks like someone else besides the teabaggers should have consulted urbandictionary.com first...

    Was she flirting with David Wright when this happened?

    Nothing is inappropriate on the internet. Have you read reader comments? Racist comments? Cuss words. Anything goes. It's the way the higher-ups want it. Clicks you know?

    I'm 50-50 on the hed. I wouldn't have used it, but I'm not going to throw stones at anyone who would. Erin Andrews is known for her looks. A facial is a beautification procedure. "Erin Andrews gets a money shot"? Now there's asking for trouble.

    And to me, inappropriate under your paper's masthead is inappropriate under your paper's masthead whether it's an article, blog, column, LTE, reader comment, ect.

    I guess I'm too into volleyball. Announcers use "facial" frequently when a player gets hit in the face with the ball.

    I would've never used the hed. Wouldn't even have had to think twice about it; find something else.

    I'm thinking the double entendre was intentional, folks. How about the rest of you?

    And, yes, it's inappropriate ... but I still chuckled.

    Is there any doubt?

    . . . given that the ideal target audience is the knuckledraggers the Boomer and Carton show
    pitch hard to on the FAN in NYC.

    So what if Erin Andrews really did get a facial ... meaning beautification work on her face? Would the headline be inappropriate then?

    ... and what if a guy really DID blow his load in her face?

    Well, obviously then it would be totally appropriate and the hed would just be reflecting the news. Run it!

    I heard Erin Andrews' date to the ESPYs backed out because something suddenly came up.
