Pa­tri­ots lost Su­per Bowl?

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

BOS­TON — It wasn’t ex­actly ‘Dewey De­feats Tru­man,’ but some Florida read­ers of The Bos­ton Globe learned a dif­fer­ent Su­per Bowl out­come than most. Early edi­tions of New Eng­land’s largest news­pa­per ran a front page Mon­day sug­gest­ing the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots lost in the Na­tional Foot­ball League’s cham­pi­onship game to the At­lanta Fal­cons. The head­line read “A Bit­ter End” over an im­age of a fallen Tom Brady. The Pa­tri­ots ended up mount­ing a fu­ri­ous rally and won 34-28 in over­time. Part-time Florida res­i­dent M. Charles Bakst says he re­ceived the edi­tion at his res­i­dence in Fort My­ers and it re­minded him of the in­fa­mous head­line the Chicago Daily Tri­bune ran fol­low­ing U.S. pres­i­dent Harry Tru­man’s 1948 re-elec­tion vic­tory over chal­lenger Thomas Dewey. It’s not im­me­di­ately clear how many edi­tions were af­fected. Globe of­fi­cials did not im­me­di­ately re­turn a mes­sage seeking com­ment. Bos­ton-area edi­tions ran the head­line “Win For The Ages” and showed a tri­umphant Brady hold­ing up the cham­pi­onship tro­phy.
