Reporters Get Millionth Chance To Correct Mistake, Fail

I think my personal Twilight Zone episode is the "walk-off" misuse. The Red Sox scored three in the bottom of the ninth to win today, forcing the opponents to have to walk off the field mid-inning, but it's universally reported as the winning team having "walked off with the win." You can't walk off the field unless you're on the field, which only the defense is at the time of a walk-off hit.

(Funny, my pal John Quinn is a huge Twilight Zone fan, and his personal TZ seems to be just hearing the term "walk-off" so much.)

Anyway, Lester shined/shone/shinded today and the offense bit until the ninth in the 3-2 win.
