Seen one Chastain, seen them all?

The Daily News headline writers had a brain freeze (happens to all of us) and wrote that soccer player Brandi Chastain stars in "Zero Dark Thirty," not Oscar-nominated actor Jessica Chastain. And they spelled Brandi's name wrong, if that is indeed who they meant.

"So after Bin Laden is killed she takes off her shirt?," Bob Timmermann quips.

They will eventually fix the headline, but notice the error is enshrined in the story's web address.

First person: Brandi Chastain on the goal (and the shirt) in the 1999 Women's World Cup final at the Rose Bowl.
