    We went with — "Heaven sent" as the main and a subhead of "Angel Cabrera holds off Tiger to win Open"

    Angel And Demons -- Cabrera pulls upset as Furyk, Woods rue missed opportunities

    SI.com and ESPN.com now have identical headlines: Last Man Standing

    I wonder who copied whom.

    Which is ironic since it's usually FERGUSON CHOKES ON TIGER.

    Well, obviously it was SI.com that did the copying. Because just after the tourney ended, the crawl on ESPN read: "ESPN's Chris Berman is reporting that Angel Cabrera won the U.S. Open"

    I'd guess ESPN copied -- I have seen ESPN with identical headlines to other major sports sites on many occasions as well.

    None of the Angel references work in my book, because it's not pronounced Ane-gel.

    So what about An-gel of an Open?

    Suppose you've never heard of a "visual pun" or reference?


    It's not so much fun being a literalist all the time.
