Gay, Dix and double entendre glory in headline form

Oh Reuters, thanks for the thorough coverage of the Prefontaine Classic Diamond League race between Walter Dix and Tyson Gay. Not since the Nashville Predators' Pekka (Rinne) came up huge in the NHL playoffs have we had such rich material for awkward headline writing.

To make it an even richer read, Dix gave the following gem of a quote, to be filed in the "not making this up" category:

"I was a little sloppy out of the blocks, but I was able to hold on. But I'm a little beat up, too."

Perfect fodder on a WTF Friday.

Thanks, BoingBoing.
