A Two-for-One Special

While reading this front-page article about baseball star Ryan Braun testing positive for a banned substance, I came across two "misses" in a short span: a missing word and a misspelled word.

The missing word. Look at the last sentence of the top paragraph. The game has been cleaned up, perhaps, but this sentence is stained. Where's the an between as and example?

The misspelled word. Affix your gaze to the lengthy first sentence of the bottom paragraph. Barry Bonds is a lot of things to a lot of people, but he is definitely not an all-tine anything. We were looking for the letter with two humps, not one. The letters m and n look similar and couldn't be closer, alphabetically speaking, but they can't be used interchangeably. If they were, we could be firing N16s, snacking on N&N's and listening to "U Can't Touch This" by NC Hanner.
