Not quite true
THIS SENTENCE, found in a sports column, has a major flaw. Peyton Manning on Sunday found three different ways to say he'll never play outside of Indiana.
Actually, Manning said he wouldn't play for a team outside of Indiana (the Indianapolis Colts). There's a huge difference, since, half the time, he WILL play somewhere other than Indy. Road games. Two Grahams: Interestingly, the Washington Redskins have two kickers battling for one job. The incumbent is second-year man Graham Gano. His competition is Shayne Graham. Hey, I'm an editor; I love things like this.
