My That Colon Smells Good

I Can't Wait For The Inevitable Colon/Wang Headline

Because I have a journalism background, I'm aware that headline writers have one of the worst jobs in the industry. You're stuck in a dying industry and getting paid next to nothing to write stuff that no one gives you credit for. Trust me, it's depressing. Yet every now and then you can occasionally slip a gem of a headline through. But that said, I'm not sure how in the hell this one managed to get on the Telegram & Gazette newspaper. I mean, it's not even somewhat subtle.

And it's not like this never happens. I have a feeling know for certain that Chien-Ming Wang gets similar treatment, although it's a little more subtle. This one's from the Hartford Courant.

I just can't wait for the inevitable Wang/Colon match up and subsequent headline, which we all know is bound to happen.

My suggestions: 'Wang Sticks It To Colon' or 'Colon Manages To Squeeze Past Wang'

  I smell an idea for a poll.


Oh yea, sorry.  My cheesy one-liner contribution:


As the Sox/Yankees rivalry stiffens, Wang-Colon rub each other the wrong way.

Heady Wang meets apprehensive Colon.

That is a lot better than what I had "Colon to Clash With Wang".


I had wished either of these guys were writing for out here when Dick's Sporting Goods bought Southern Californian Sporting Goods chain called Chick's. Think of all the double entendre's you could roll out with that.

Thank god Eric Byrnes doesn't play for the Yanks..."Wang, Byrnes lead the way over Colon and the Sox"

Heady Wang meets apprehensive Colon.

Fantastic work. Deserves a +100 if I could give it.
