ESPN Soccer Headline: Dann Suffers Ruptured Testicle, Kean on Sack

Blackburn defender Scott Dann apparently suffered a ruptured testicle injury and will be out six weeks. Blackburn is also 2-10-4, and coach Steve Kean is on the hot seat. That gave ESPN Soccernet the opportunity to use the old “Dann suffers ruptured testicle | Kean on sack” double headline. Better yet, if you take a look at the Kean story, the headline reads “Kean rejects talk of the sack,” (click twice on the picture above to enlarge).

I’m guessing that plays much differently here than it does in the U.K., where sack doesn’t equate to scrotum. I have no idea if the page’s editor did that intentionally, but it sure is appreciated by us 4-year-olds here at LBS.

As awesome as the headline is, it has nothing on two of our other favorite inappropriate headlines: this and this.

Thanks to LBS writer Danny Lee for the tip.
