Weekend Workers Have a Little Fun with Headlines

My first look at Alabama newspapers this morning over at http://www.al.com.
The first story I see is that Alabama head coach Nick Saban has hired the former University of Virginia offensive coordinator. The brief story explains how it all happened but the web address is more interesting. As a message board visitor pointed out, the url is, well I’ll cut and paste so you can read it for yourself:
http://blog.al.com/rapsheet/2009/03/nick_saban_hires_former_virgin.html

Don’t notice it yet? He’s hired a former virgin.

And just below that headline is this one:
“Thief steals the family jewels”.

I’m not making this up. The creative, probably weekend producer came up with that headline for a one sentence report from the Huntsville police blotter.
