Mets accidentally emailed GM’s credit card info to media

Mets suck

The Mets, being who they are, can’t even send an email these days without screwing up.

According to ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin, a Mets employee accidentally sent out an email to the media that contained the credit card information including the security code and expiration date of the team’s GM, Sandy Alderson.

They later explained that the email was intended for a “Broadway connection capable of securing tickets for a weekend show.”

Maybe Alderson was planning to meet Omar Minaya and Minaya’s Prada shoes at the show.

See, and this is exactly why you make a phone call when giving out credit card information for payment purposes. Come on, Mets!

Warriors screwed up email announcing Mark Jackson firing

The Golden State Warriors sent out an email to season ticket holders on Tuesday to inform them of the Mark Jackson firing. Only there was one pretty big oversight.

In the subject line for the email, the Warriors screwed up by saying they had beaten the Clippers and were now offering tickets for the second round of the postseason:

Warriors email

They obviously realized the mistake, because they sent out another email 10 minutes later to correct the error. Notice the subject line in this one:

Wishful thinking for the Warriors. They probably just had that email in their cue in case the team won and forgot to make the adjustment after the loss. It happens.

Timofey Mozgov lights it up with 93 points, according to TNT

Timofey Mozgov 93 points

Timofey Mozgov had one heck of a game on Thursday against the Golden State Warriors. He went 10-of-15 and grabbed a career-high 29 rebounds.

Impressive.

But according to a TNT graphic, he also scored an astounding 93 points!

Considering Mozgov’s 93 points rank second in NBA history, it was only natural for his game to get the Wilt Chamberlain 100-point game treatment:

As my friend Colin said, it’s pretty shocking that TNT didn’t even highlight the 93 as a career high for Mozgov! What, did he once go for 120 back in Russia?

FOX 31 Denver accidentally airs penis picture on live TV (Video)

FOX 31 KDVR in Denver committed one of the most epic blunders we have ever seen on live TV.

The Denver news station was covering the crash of a KOMO-TV helicopter in Seattle and aired photos from a Twitter feed. Unfortunately for them, whatever Twitter feed they were scrolling through wasn’t exactly censored. The result was a penis photo made it onto air.

KDVR apologized for what happened:

While reporting breaking news about the crash of the KOMO-TV helicopter in Seattle, FOX31 Denver accidentally broadcast an offensive photo while scrolling live through a Twitter feed of pictures from the crash scene.

The photo was mistakenly broadcast by our control room. It did not come from the tablet many viewers saw being used by one of our anchors.

We apologize for the inadvertent broadcast of the image and we are taking immediate steps to prevent such an accident from happening again.

The best part was seeing the entire panel gasp at the same time. Look at how appalled they were:

KDVR Denver

That’s two mouths wide open and a third covering his mouth. Only the dude on his iPad didn’t react. He must have missed it.

Providence reporter does not realize he’s on TV, gives us great blooper (Video)

Frank CarpanoA miscommunication between the studio anchor and field reporter led to a great blooper on WJAR-TV in Providence, Rhode Island, on Saturday night.

Based on the video, it seems like there was an issue that prevented reporter Frank Carpano from going on-air for his initial report following Providence’s win over Creighton at the Big East tournament, so the host tried to kick it back to him again. Even though Carpano was giving a thumbs up, he apparently could not hear his cue, and therefore did not realize he was on air. He kept futzing with his earpiece the entire time.

The pinnacle was when Carpano, not realizing he was on live TV, launched himself at the camera with the thumbs up and said, “I gave you a thumbs up!”

Dude, if you couldn’t hear, then why did you give a thumbs up?

Wichita State T-shirts incorrectly lists Indiana State as MVC tournament champs

Wichita State T-shirt

Wichita State capped a perfect regular season by beating Indiana State Sunday 83-69 to win the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. Only you wouldn’t know it by the T-shirts the team was wearing in their celebration.

The front of the team’s conference tourney champs shirts properly showed the Shockers as the conference tourney winners, but the back, which had the bracket from the tournament, incorrectly listed Indiana State as the winner.

Who goofed? I’ve got to know!

Snowflake fail during Olympics opening ceremony

Olympics Ceremony snowflake

You knew the opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi couldn’t go down without a hitch, right? There was one noticeable error during a light show when one of the five snowflakes that were supposed to turn into Olympic rings failed to open.

As our friend Brad Evans joked, somebody just lost a body part over that screwup.

Looks like that snowflake was giving us a wink or something.

Olympic rings fail

I think this should be the new official logo of the Sochi Olympics.
