Sit down woman

This article from The Sun is fairly typical of the ineptitude of the British tabloids when it comes to covering American sports. The focus of their report on the game between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox is a vacuous supermodel in the stands. Anyone wanting to find out what happened in the actual game will be sorely disappointed. They mention that the Yankees won, but omit the score. If you wanted to know who pitched, who scored the runs or what the game meant in the context of the season, you would have to look elsewhere.

Then again, perhaps MLB.com should think about catering for Sun readers. I think it might look something like this:
