Headlines from around the Continuum: October 22, 2014

A sampling of baseball-related headlines from the Newseum, with the occasional note from me on what they are talking about:

(Note that I try to copy the style of the paper as well, hence why some are in ALL CAPS while others aren’t. Also, I ignored extremely basic-and extremely common- headlines like “Giants win” or “Game 2 tonight”. I’ll occasionally make an exception for the team’s “home” newspapers)

Headline: Giants win Game 1, 7-1

San Francisco Chronicle: To start, a royal drubbing

San Francisco Examiner: Giants strike early, often

Kansas City Star: BUMMER

Bakersfield Californian: DETHRONED (w/ image of sad Royals fans)

Appeal-Democrat (Marysville, CA): Giants deliver Royals pain in Game 1


Monterey (CA) Herald: ROYAL CRUSH (was also used in other papers, too)

Oakland Tribune: ONE GIANT STEP (the San Jose Mercury News had the same headline, as did others)


San Mateo (CA) Daily Journal: ONE DOWN, THREE TO GO

The Record (Stockton, CA): SF fans gather to watch glory

Tampa Bay Times: WHAT A SHAME IN GAME 1 FOR BIG GAME JAMES (Note that James Shields got his start as a Ray)

The Hawk Eye (Burlington, IA): Royally Disappointed

Lawrence (KS) Journal-World: PUT AWAY YOUR BROOMS

Joplin (MO) Globe: ROUGH START

News-Leader (Springfield, MO): FEE-FI-FO-FUM (because Giants, get it?)


El Universal (Cartagena, Colombia): SERIE GIGANTE (Giant Series)

Novedades de Quintana Roo (Quintana Roo, Mexico): Gigantes da el primer golpe (“Giants tee off” or “Giants land the first blow” or something along those lines)

Vanguardia (Saltillo, Mexico): GIGANTES ROMPEN RACHA (“Giants break streak”)

La Prensa (Managua, Nicaragua): Bumgarner estuvo gigante (“Bumgarner was giant”)

El Nuevo Dia (San Juan, Puerto Rico): PALIZA GIGANTE A KANSAS CITY (Could range, depending on translation, from simply saying that the Giants beat Kansas City to something like “Giant beating of Kansas City”)
