Print Snafu: Power Headline Goes Here

Last night ESPN displayed an amusing recurring screengrab snafu during a report from Tim Kurkjian with the headline "TEXT TEXT TEXT TEXT, GENERIC TEXT GOES HERE."  Always one of our favorites.  That snafu led a reader to share with us an even better snafu that was actually printed in a newspaper (evidently they still make those) and one we'd never seen before.  It comes from June's Charleston Gazette in Charleston, West Virginia and the West Virginia Power, a Class A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.  The headline, at the top of the sports page, appropriately enough reads "Power headline goes here."  If there is a silver lining in that headline hilariously making it to print, at least it was actually put in the right place.
