Headline boos

So, apparently Toronto is still not over the Maple Leafs' epic gag in Game 7 of their first-round series against the Boston Bruins.

How else to explain the city opening up its paper to this headline this morning?

You're a bitter, bitter city, Toronto. But there's something refreshing about your candor, at least, that makes the Blob wonder what it would be like if other cities displayed such raw honesty ...

From the Dallas Morning News on the morning after the Washington Redskins lost to the Seahawks last fall in the playoffs: "Redskins, Jerko Owner Dan Snyder Get Theirs."

From the Detroit Free Press the morning after the Blackhawks' triumph: "Toews, Rest Of Crybabies Win Cup, Will Still Never Be Hockeytown."

From the paper in Maria Sharapova's hometown, the morning after Serena Williams won the French Open: "Homewrecker Williams Lucks Out Despite Sharapova's Brave Effort."

And last but not least ... from any Boston newspaper the morning after any of the New York Yankees' 27 World Series championships: "(Bleeping) Yankees Win (Bleeping) World Series. (Bleep)."
