Only the NY Post Could Get Away With this World Cup Cover

June 14, 2010



The New York Post takes a, um, unique angle on yesterday’s World Cup game between the U.S. and England that ended in a draw. And by unique, I mean, inaccurate. The U.S. did not actually win. To the best of my knowledge a 1-1 score in any game in not a win.

Nevertheless! The Post is not one the let technicalities get in the way of a good cover. Actually, my initial reaction when I saw the paper this morning was that the Post had somehow gone to press before the gamed ended and they were merely hoping that wanting the U.S. to win was enough to justify a cover stating they did. However, the game ended long before the print deadline.

So, perhaps the Post was speaking metaphorically? As in, the U.S. wins some World Cup respect? The U.S. wins bragging rights? The U.S. wins the right to keep beating up England over BP? It’s unclear. The British Press meanwhile, is seeing the results through slightly less rose colored glasses.

Update: Philip Bump points out that the Post may have been inspired by the famous headline from a Harvard paper when they “beat” Yale 29-29.
