Must be that time of year: McNabb to Niners story a fake
Earlier today, a very suspect ESPN link (with a flood of typographical errors), suggested that Donovan McNabb had been traded to the San Francisco 49′ers. The story is a fake, but has generated significant buzz online.

Please: they misspelled “Donovan McNabb” and “San Francisco” in the headline. Can we get a proofreader, people?
