Sarah Lee Fries Golf Balls

So a golfer named Sarah Lee storms out to the first-round lead at an LPGA tourney in Williamsburg, and the media persons realize something. Wait a second, the media persons say to themselves, as the realization dawns. Spelling differences aside, Sarah Lee is ALSO THE NAME OF A FAMOUS COMPANY!!!!!!! Omigod Omigod Omigod!!!!!

Headline in the Globe and Mail: "Sarah Lee Cooking"

Headline in the Philly Inquirer: "Lee cooks up 63 to lead in Williamsburg"

Headline in the New York Post: "Cakewalk for Sarah Lee"

Headline in the Virginian-Pilot: "Sarah Lee's 63 makes Kingsmill seem a piece of cake"

Headline in the Daily Press: "Nobody Does it Like Sarah Lee"

Headline in the Richmond Times-Dispatch: "Lee Fashions Tasty Round To Take Lead"

Subhed: "Nobody did it better on 'perfect' day for low scores at Kingsmill"

Lede: "A player with an appropriately savory name -- Sarah Lee -- served up one of the most delectable rounds of golf in Michelob Ultra Open history."

Here, though, is the sad Sara Lee lesson for the headline writers in Newport News and Richmond. That famous Sara Lee slogan running through your heads? It's not "Nobody Does it Like Sara Lee." It's "Nobody Doesn't Like Sara Lee." Really. Check the company's FAQ's if you don't believe me. And now we can all surely say, today, we learned something we didn't previously know.

Coco Crisp's batting average is a rather stale .228 this year.

Oh is that how it's gonna be played?

Milton Bradley plays for the love of the game.

Maybe Sara Lee's announcing talent needs to chill with the double negatives and enunciate a bit more. Just a thought.

And as bad as those examples are, nothing will ever touch the lovely Shakespearean bastardizations that Mr. Freddy Adu brought to the world.
