NY tabloids: Sorry, Sorry Night for the Yankees

New York Daily News New York Post

Lots of trouble for the New York Yankees right now — Jorge Posada forgets he’s hitting .185 when complained about hitting 9th. He apologized. The team is in a freefall as well, losing 5 in a row and 9 of 12. Getting swept by the Boston Red Sox is no fun either. Had the Yanks been able to take care of business against the Sawx this season or even split the two series, they would be in first place right now.

So, is there are meeting at the NY Daily News or NY Post whenever the a cover headline is the same? I’d be very curious to find out how the deal with doing exact same thing as their competitor.

STAR-MELO: NY tabloids use same backpage headline

New York Daily News New York Post

That didn’t take long…

Even though I don’t really follow the NBA and I was getting tired about hearing about Carmleo Anthony being traded from the Denver Nuggets. Anthony’s debut with New York Knickerbockers yielded a win and the same backpage headline on the NY Daily News and NY Post. I guess the latter gets credit for the exclamation point. Points off for not having a larger version of the backpage yet though, I’ll see about changing it if/when it becomes available.

It has been a long time since the tabloids had a same headline. Oh and I insist on calling the Madison Square Garden basketball tenant the Knickerbockers, I wish Spike Lee would do the same.

New Yorkers don’t like Clearview street signs

New Yorkers outraged as bureaucrats order city to change lettering on every single street signNY Daily News
$27 million to change NYC signs from all-capsNY Post
All street signs in New York City need to be converted to mixed-case Clearview font by 2018. Steve Anderson of NYCRoads.com summed it up by saying “the capital of the world is going lower-case” — Both tabloids have negative stories on the move away from all-uppercase street signs. The Daily News even makes the new signs the lead on the cover.

Commenters on Anderson’s Facebook profile suggested that reports that Clearview was mandated by Federal Highway Administration maybe incorrect. That mandate may happen in the future though.

I’m skeptical of the claims that mixed-case street makes street signs safer and I can’t stand the Clearview font, even though Penn State had a hand in its development. However, I’ll make an exception for one New York City road — the Clearview Expressway (I-295).

Eli Manning draws First Blood on both NYC tabloids

New York Daily News New York Post

New York Giants QB Eli Manning got destroyed in last night’s preseason game (played in New Jersey) against the New York Jets. He christened the artificial turf at New Meadowlands Stadium with blood gushing from a massive head wound that needed a dozen stitches. The tabloids both had the same though with their backpage headline.

Here is the video (but for how long?):
