A Journalistic No-No

Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers threw a no-hitter last night, which sent sports scribes scrambling to do his gem journalistic justice. Of course, to properly convey the magnitude of the feat—only the second this year!—headline writers were forced to make puns out of every major word in the story: Detroit-Tigers-Justin-Verlander. And they're off!
