"Fall" Fell Out

Well, I don't know if I'd categorize it as "a big wrong," but it is most definitely wrong. Thanks to Mike, from MovieShotsLA, for e-mailing me the image at right. Why did the ESPN writer fall short of getting elected to the Hall of Fame? Well, look closely at the fifth word in the sentence. Here is an instance in which a person would have welcomed being labeled a fall guy. Alas, the caption writer was a fell guy.

The editors at fixed the mistake (as you can see below), but not fast enough for it to go unnoticed by When Write Is Wrong and its readers. Thanks again, Mike. Without you, today's error might have fallen through the cracks.
