Back when ESPN first hired their new online Editor-in-Chief I got an email from J at Vegas Watch with the subject "Tough start for New ESPN Editor". I opened the email and J mentioned that a title on the main page linking to a Pat Forde article on Tiger Woods read....."To Tough to Tame."
I was a bit late in reading the email, and by the time I got to the page the title had been changed entirely. Well that bring us to today, or yesterday for that matter. From Larry Brown Sports via Between The Lines....
So what's the problem you ask? Well, the deceased person's name is Skip Prosser. Now I'm not one to pick on mistakes because let's face it...I'm not perfect myself. But this is a tad ridiculous, and it seems to be happening more and more lately.
Hardly A Eulogy for Skip Prosser (Larry Brown Sports)
