What the heck is up with ESPN.com’s wack new policy of treating singular cities and team names as if they were plural nouns in their news headlines, as in “Tribe acquire Anthony Reyes” or “Arizona triumph over the Giants” rather than “Tribe acquires” and “Arizona triumphs”?
Has anyone else noticed this? Because it’s been happening all the time lately.
Did ESPN secretly get bought by the British or something? Bring in a whole bunch of British editors? Because that’s not how we ever said those things here in America, and last time I checked, Bristol, Conn., was still firmly in American hands.
I just hope this weirdness doesn’t catch on with real Americans like that stupid “untracked” crap.
