The Boston Herald is once again trumpeting the receipt of a Newseum Top Ten Front Pages designation for yesterday’s edition. Under the headline “They’re Baack!” the Newseum site noted:
Sunday’s kickoff of the new NFL season marked the return of great front-page photographs of the winners and losers, as well as the winning headlines. The best two: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s “Adding Injury to Insult, ” and “Victo … no, a loss, ” in the Tampa Bay Times.
And don’t forget the Herald, with this Page One.
Which turned up on Page 10 of today’s edition.
Notice that only the top half of that front page is devoted to the Patriots. And still the feisty local tabloid won! That’s like winning a fight with one hand tied behind your back!
Just amazing, eh?
