I can't write that headline

I WAS GOING TO WRITE a headline about the St. Louis Rams' punter having a great day. Rams' punter had near-perfect day.

I couldn't use it, though, since a local university has the nickname Rams, too.

So I had to settle for this headline: St. Louis punter was nearly perfect. No confusion there.

If you're wondering, I was working the sports copy desk at the local newspaper.
