New York Times Sports vs. Tolkien

According to a recent New York Times piece, New York Mets pitcher R. A. Dickey likes to name his bats after swords from The Hobbit and Beowulf. Well, it turns out the Old Gray Lady made a mistake when it identified one of the swords and it seems they heard from a few angry Lord of the Rings fans about it. Thanks to Gothamist for this.
