Holland win the World Cup...

...well...for a couple of minutes...kinda...

For a short amount of time, a very short amount of time, people who read the CBS News website were under the illusion that The Netherlands had beaten Spain for the World Cup title.

A pre-written article congratulating The Netherlands for winning “by a score of SCORE to SCORE” was published on CBS’s 2010 World Cup site accidentally, where it remained online long enough for the above screenshot to be captured.

Apparently this kind of thing happens a lot where news sites have an article pre-written in the moments leading up to the end of such an event so they can publish it online quickly.
