Why editors matter....

This picture was captioned "Tatiana Volosozhar and Stanislav Morozov of the Ukraine compete in the Pairs Short Program Figure Skating during Day 1 of the Turin 2006 Winter Olympic Games on February 11, 2006 at the Palavela in Turin, Italy." I am fairly sure (although I would happily be wrong because maybe Bryan would enjoy figure skating more* if this were really the scene) that this is actually a picture of women's Olympic hockey.

I did LOL when I read the caption, and imagined a bit of a blamestorm at the Yahoo! news (or sports) photo desk....

* The author has been chastised for her use of the word "more" because it implies that there is (or has heretofore been) any enjoyment of figure skating whatsoever. The author apologizes profusely for this erroneous impression and would like to advise her small reading public that Bryan does not now, nor has he in the past ever, "enjoyed" figure skating viewing. Tolerated, yes; endured, yes; [not-so-silently] suffered through, yes. He is, after all, an excellent husband, as you know.
Thank you for your time.
