This from today's Contra Costa Times, my local newspaper (scroll down in the linked article for the item; emphasis in the excerpt is mine):
Striker Brian McBride, 35, is leaving Fulham after 412 years to return to the United States, the English Premier League club said.I had no idea McBride had played at Fulham since the late 1600s.
This rivals my favorite typo from this paper. Several years ago, when the 49ers had a day off, the paper quoted player Andre Carter as saying that his plans were just to "sit on the coach all day." See if you can spot the typo.
Generally, the CC Times has good local sports coverage. Their feature profiles of local college athletes really are quite good. It's the editing that's sorely lacking in quality. I suppose that's life on a short deadline.
