Whoops! ESPN Error Leads To Racially Charged Headline!

#stupid
Now, maybe it was in error, and I’ll give those that are choosing the headlines the benefit of the doubt there, but in that case: how stupid can you be? 

Post the loss suffered by the Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks, ESPN’s story on it was “Chink In The Armor”.  I’m kind of aghast that no-one saw the obvious there.  It’s since been changed to “All Good Things…” – but once it’s out there: it’s out there.

There are bound to be those that declare this to be a racial slight, but I’ll fall short of that.  Either way, stupidity.  Yes, there have been worse blunders in the world of sports, but heads’ll roll would be my bet.
