    I was reading an online article (from a popular woodworking magazine) recently and the number of errors outweighed the value of the piece. Misspellings, spell-check issues, grammar, you name it. I wanted to comment: "Fire your idiot editor!" but meh...on to something else.

    hmm, maybe 'fire your editor, idiot!' might be better.

    I believe that's Kathryn Sandercock. She pitched a full 7 innings in the previous game between midnight and 2 AM early Sunday, 8 strikeouts on 111 pitches (79 strikes). This is how that game ended.

    Probably the same person. It looked like a lot of self-edited pieces I've seen. Your brain rarely sees its own mistakes.

    Not sure why ESPN screwed the pooch so badly. That is pretty blatant. Typos have become commonplace. They are rampant in most online news articles. This is because newspapers and other sources have cut costs by getting rid of most of the editors. They leave it up to the writers to check their own spelling. That's a bad idea! When you write something, you are so familiar with it your mind doesn't scrutinize it anymore, because it already knows what is there. I write technical papers as part of my job, and my reviewers always find typos that I have made, even after I am sure there are none.

    On a Pixel, the Gboard spellcheck is worthless. It's been like that for years. What's perplexing is that Google knows it's garbage, but they haven't done anything to fix it.

    Well luckily the mistake was made broadcasting a women's sport where there aren't very many viewers to notice.

    I'll show myself out. ;)

    ESPN has been in decline for at least the past five years. Except for some college basketball or football, I hardly watch them anymore. Most of their sports "news" shows are truly bad...

    Yes! Their grammar is atrocious. They butcher adverbs all the time. They need to learn from this.
