    Worst. Headline. Ever.

    I don't know much about soccer, and I think I'm glad.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I think that maybe a headline writer at ESPN.com needs to be kept on a shorter leash.

    Whilst here at work, I googled the headline to gain further insight, and now my company's IT guy wants to talk with me.

    Makes all the routine posts.

    Soccernet's writers, and UK writers, are notorious for atrocious (and sometimes sublime) headline puns.

    This article dealt with a Swiss club called Young Boys (I have no idea why) who plays in the unfortunately named Wankdorf stadium. Apparently they were having trouble with construction.

    My favorite: some time ago a tiny club called Inverness Caledonian Thistle knocked giants Glasgow Celtic out of the Scottish Cup in a huge upset. The headline: "Super Caley Are Terrific, Celtic Were Atrocious."

    Awesome.

    It comes up "File Not Found" when I click on the link.

    What was the headline??
