Butler wins!



Truman Hey, in case you hadn't heard, Butler beat Duke last night in the NCAA national championship basketball game. Well, that's what the Indianapolis Star's Web site said for a few moments Monday night, according to this post on Deadspin. This "Dewey Defeats Truman'' moment happens more often than we would like to admit. The ending of a game creeps toward deadline, you have two stories ready to go as soon as the game ends and then some sap pushes the wrong button. Back when the Lightning won the Stanley Cup, the Tampa Tribune ran an editorial the next day that praised the Lightning for almost winning the Cup. So you can understand that mistakes happen. But better they happen to someone else than us.
