Editing a name change

WHEN CHAD JOHNSON CHANGED his name to Chad Ochocinco to match his NFL uniform number (85), Spanish teachers rebelled. The term for 85 is ochenta y cinco (80 and five).

NEEDS EDITING: The ... girls basketball team played the roll of “Grinch” Tuesday, stealing everything in sight from visiting Martinsville.

Yes, that appeared around Christmas, but I just noticed it. That's role, not roll.
