An error is one thing, making the error because you've become preconditioned to expect that you'll hear something different from what you actually hear is something completely different. Hot off the AP:
CLEVELAND -- In an April 28 story about the first-round playoff series between the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers, The Associated Press erroneously reported a comment by Wizards point guard Gilbert Arenas. Discussing the chances of the Wizards overcoming a 3-1 deficit to win the series, Arenas said: "They said there are eight teams that have done it. We can be the ninth." He did not say, "We are going to be the ninth."
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it's gotten to the point where they're expecting the Wizards to talk smack!
