NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Someone might be looking for a job.

A newspaper in Indiana was taking a lot of heat Wednesday after printing an extremely regrettable headline.

And, no, not for its online version, where maybe the damage could have been contained. It’s all right there in black and white — and permanent.

The Brooklyn Nets got whacked by the Miami Heat 107-86 in Game 1 of their playoff series Tuesday night. What came Wednesday morning from the Evansville Courier & Press took an unintended shot at the Nets’ manhood — literally.

The newspaper quickly apologized online, saying what most everyone already knew.

Game 2 of the series is set for Thursday night in Miami.
