Worst Sports Lede of the We...

Worst Sports Lede of the Week: F on Thursday night at Edison Field, it might have gone something like this:

The Indians said goodbye, and Kevin Appier said hello.

When Garret Anderson swung, the Angels said, "Go, go, go!" I swear I'm not making this up.

One of the first 10 articles I ever wrote for my college paper was a review of the movie Hoosiers. It, too, started with a Weird Al-style Beatles knock-off:

Picture yourself on a farm in the Midwest
[I forget the rest of the bad verse ... then the chorus:]
Hackman what a guy in Hoosiers!
He'll win with a bunch of white losers
He'll even fix up a boozer
Ooohhh-ohhh...
No, I'm not proud. But I was an 18-year-old jackass. And, I might add, my song bore at least some syllabic resemblance to the original.
