As well they should

Actual headline:

Screenshot: Adidas gives Andy Murray new shorts after balls pop out

Legit story behind it:

Adidas has provided Andy Murray with a new pair of shorts after his tennis balls repeatedly popped out of his shorts during his victory against Marcos Baghdatis.

Murray lost two points during Saturday’s (30 June) showdown with Baghdatis, after a tennis ball fell from his pocket mid-point. Adidas has attributed the faulty shorts to human error, because the pockets on the hand-made shorts had been made too shallow.

Now that’s just nuts.

    I have no doubt that headline writer knew precisely what he/she was doing. And then spent the rest of the day laughing about it.
