Yahoo news reports on two blown call by an umpire in last night's baseball game.  After the account of each call, the article gives a hot link with sentence "Here is an animation."

But in each case, what is shown is not an animation at all but rather a slow-motion replay.

Is that a new sense of "animation"?
