The Times always had a peculiar way of writing their headlines.

On top of the whole preposition thing (which is mentioned in the podcast), they always use periods after every abbreviation or acronym. Thus, instead of "NFL" as most people right, it's invariably "N. F. L." in a Times headline.
The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. It may just be that I have two enemies.
