You'll notice one small change this week--the top voted headline of the week was "Cardinals hire new manager" and it's brilliant, but technically, it's a context headline that will be in the context contest.
Most of the time, I don't list the context headlines here, but I've decided that when a context headline performs so well, I'll still show it here, even though it'll be in another contest later.
It won't change the Headline of the Year contest at all, but you'll get to appreciate it in these weekly writeups
