Digging themselves into a hole

Maybe it’s just me, but this headline, “The (black) hole is getting deeper,” seen in The Boston Globe (12/14/08) next to this picture of three African American football players . . .

black-hole2

seems like very very unfortunate placement.

********

Update: Yes, this article is about the Oakland Raiders and yes, a part of their stadium is known as the black hole. So the headline makes sense (sort of) with the article, which is about how much the Raiders stink. Still doesn’t make this right juxtaposition right. Just sayin’.
