You can tell a lot about an article by its first paragraph. At least I think you can. After reading this opening paragraph from Yahoo! Sports‘ “From the Marbles,” I stopped reading:

I really don’t know if the rest of the article is as bad as this. But when a single sentence contains at least one typo (and maybe two) and a violation of the subject-verb agreement rule, chances are the rest of the article isn’t going to be an improvement.
