Star Tribune headline about Koivu brothers is regrettably salacious

We know they didn't mean it like that, but still... check out the unfortunate headline the Strib used in today's paper for an article about Wild player Mikko Koivu and his brother Saku, both of whom are candidates to be captains of the Finland national team during the upcoming Olympics.

Lame headline, changed online to offer a better idea of the subbject matter since there aren't space constraints, allowing for a more telling headline than the constrictive printed page.

But leave it to CP readers to get hot and bothered by a lame headline. 

And I'd like to take a moment to say hi to the troll who tracks my every posting like he's Deputy U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard. It's great to have a fan. It's an honor, actually.

Yes it is kind of suggestive......I've lived in Minnesota for most of my 30 years and am not surprised it is City Pages that felt the need to publish the obvious here. Who else would get so excited about the thought of plugging somebody else? City Pages never fails to entertain us.
