Make piece

FOUND ONLINE: With many of its stars over the 30-year-old threshold (Suggs, Flacco, Pitta, Eric Weddle), Baltimore must make piece with an ugly rebuilding process in the near future.

Normally, it's make peace, not make piece.

ALSO FOUND ONLINE: That player would then likely starting playing in fear of hitting a player illegally—for the first time in his career, perhaps.

I think it would be start playing, not starting playing.

Heavy wait champions

The Chicago Cubs won the World Series last October, but I just found the headline on MLB.com.

Cubs are heavy wait champions! 

It's obviously a play on boxing's heavyweight champions. The Cubs hadn't won a World Series in 108, a heavy wait indeed.

I would never have thought of that headline, but I like it.
