Wow, so if I make a good prediction on Stingtalk, WSJ will write an article about me? I better get to work.

Wow. Apparently ESPN ran the headline "Chink in the Armor" after the Knicks' first loss during under Lin.

Did anybody see that?

I am betting the same guy has made a lot more bad predictions than good, just as most predictions on here are bad. But if anyone gets one right out of 100 then you hear about it continually. :-)

Unbelievable. There is no reason to use that headline other than the word "chink". Did someone not realize it was a racial slur?

Who writes the 2am ESPN mobile site headlines? It was probably some intern who thought it would be funny.

And it kind of was actually, but more for the audacity of it and its juxtaposition against the "linsanity/lincredible/linning" puns of the past week than for its wit (of which it doesn't really have any.)

Apparently so. Guy got fired, another suspended.
