Unfortunate 'sunk like a submarine' headline

An unfortunate coincidence in this headline on today about the Scottish football team, playing in yellow shirts, being "sunk like a submarine" in a 3-0 defeat by Sweden. While the "Yellow Submarine" word play is harmless, the headline is published on the 1oth anniversary of the sinking of the Russian Navy's Kursk nuclear-powered submarine, lost with all hands in the Barents Sea on August 12, 2000.
