    No, that's not the object. The way ESPN page 2 is set up, you're really supposed to be able to tell that you're in the humor section when you go there. The front page is supposed to be like the "cover" of the "humor magazine".
    The problems arise when you go into page 2 without entering through the "cover" and just find yourself reading stuff inside a "humor magazine" without knowing it.

    I bought it too. The reason I bought it is that there's a LOT of real stuff out there that isn't too far off of this.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
