This is why the New York Times shouldn't write about football.

Because sentences like this end up in their sports blogs that have ridiculous titles like “The Fifth Down“:

The Chiefs may also consider a tight end, although don’t be surprised if they try to make a star out of supple 6’8” Brad Cottam.

Let that one soak in for a minute, Addicts. Brad Cottam is supple.

Look, I love me some Times. I’m a big politics guy. But you know you’re not playing to your greatest strengths when you start describing finely-tuned athletic crush-buses the same way as a ripe tomato.

What word would I have used? What’s wrong with “finely-tuned athletic crush-bus”?
