Small quotations that strike my fancy.

Headline of the day: October 28

“Errs to throne”

Chicago Tribune, October 28, 2006, referring to St. Louis’s World Series win, 4 games to 1 over Detroit

This headline works in so many ways: criticizing Detroit for making so many critical errors, dissing St. Louis by suggesting they backed into the title through little virtue of their own, and of course it’s a perfect pun.
