I enjoy some filthy innuendo (in-your-end-o) way more than the next guy, but I don’t expect sports journalists to be leaders in the industry. That’s the responsibility of profane sports blogs.
And yet, in the last few days, two women’s golf stories have produced headlines nothing short of brilliant. Lion in Oil found this one on the high school state tournment in Kentucky:
Freshman Talley makes best of her 2 soggy holes
Meanwhile, the San Francisco Chronicle wrote about Paula Creamer’s LPGA win this past weekend:
Creamer in the pink after 1-stroke victory
The lede for that story: “To understand the depth of Paula Creamer’s satisfaction Sunday…” I am being completely serious. Honestly, I don’t know how a one-stroke “victory” can be deeply satisfying for a woman. She must have really low expectations. Just my kinda gal.
