Gambling doesn't often pay in sports reporting. And, tonight, one of the local media outlets in the Tampa Bay area essentially crapped out.

When I saw this story about Brett Favre coming to the Bucs on the ESPN crawl last night, I knew the gauntlet had essentially been thrown down: either it would be a glorious day in that newsroom, or the story would serve as yet another cautionary tale about the rush to be first.

Guess we know how that turned out.

Infamous words, these were: "The chances of the trade unraveling are remote."
