I was sitting at my computer in the parlor last night, doing some research and getting ready to scan my final project. The Indians were on a rain delay, so I decided to keep the TV on in hopes of waiting out the storms down in Arlington, Texas.
Then I heard it.
It was a commercial for the Kirk Herbstreit High School Varsity Football Series (Herbstreit’s initial claim to fame was playing quarterback for Ohio State University back in the early 90s). The announcer said it three times:
Canton McKinley verse Cathedral
Cardinal Mooney verse Covington Catholic
Washington verse Jordan”
A (supposedly) professional TV commercial production team making this big of an error is bad enough; letting it slide through to air unedited/uncorrected is downright nasty. What am I going to do with these people?
I emailed their media person about it. She will probably come to the same conclusion as many others: I am a wackjob.
But I don’t care — it’s my party and I’ll rant if I want to. Sometimes, it’s you VERSUS the world.
