New England’s Bret Lockett Misspells “Patriots” on Decorated Denim

Last week at the Elizabeth Glaser Kids for Kids Celebrity Carnival, New England Patriots safety Bret Lockett designed a pair of denim jeans for his nephew at American Eagle’s 77kids denim decorating booth.  Nice gesture, right?  Let’s just say I hope the nephew is too young to spell.

As told by the NY Post, Lockett misspelled the word “Patriots” and instead wrote “Go Patrits” on the back pocket of the jeans.  Maybe he forgot the “O” because he plays defense?  Wow, terrible joke.  In all seriousness though, I know how that goes.  Sometimes you just get so caught up in the bedazzling that you forget how to spell and the glue dries and then it’s too late.  No, but seriously in all seriousness, we’ll give Lockett the benefit of the doubt just for attending the event, which was a benefit for pediatric AIDS research.

Those Sacramento Kings Are Playing Some Good Hockey

In one picture, you’ll see why I never got into watching sports on the local news:

That blunder took place on CBS channel 2 in Los Angeles with Jim Hill as the news anchor, and it was brought to our attention by the great Ben Maller via LA Observed. Can you imagine the LA Kings are a hometown team, playing outstanding hockey, and yet the local LA newscast posts a Sacramento Kings logo in place of theirs? Not only is that the wrong team, it’s the wrong sport! Who do they have working there?

Scott Van Pelt Says the Spotlight Fixed on ‘South Bitch’ for Heat Opener (Video)

Nothing like a classic Freudian slip to cap off a Friday night.  Don’t tell me Scott Van Pelt didn’t mean to call South Beach “South Bitch” on SportsCenter late Friday night/early Saturday morning.  I mean come on, LeBron James is the headliner down there now.  Chris Bosh, Mr. “I want to be on TV!“, now plays for the Heat.  If the shoe fits.  Check out the video of Scott Van Pelt calling South Beach “South Bitch” on SportsCenter.  Well, it’s kind of an audio of the video, but we’ll try to get you an actual clip later if you’re having trouble visualizing the act.

Possibly the Most Hilarious Titans Headline Screw-Up Ever

Kudos to Ted Williams Head for picking up on one of the most incredible journalistic headline failures of all-time.  We’ve shown you some great screw-ups here at LBS, but this one ranks among the best.  Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Derek Cox, a third-round selection in 2009, has played his way back into the starting lineup after struggling early in the season.  After a solid showing against the Bills off the bench last Sunday, writers at Tennessean.com apparently believe Cox is a player to watch in the upcoming Jaguars-Titans game.  As a matter of fact, they think the Titans will have their hands full with him.

Natually, Tennessean.com has since removed the headline and changed it to “Titans Will Have Hands Full With Jaguars’ Cornerback,” but I don’t know how you could print something like that and not pick up on it right away.  That has to have been intentional, right?

Moroccan Goalie Celebrates a Bit Early

What appeared to be a timely save for keeper Khalid Askri ended up one of the worst cases of premature celebrating soccer has ever seen.  Maghreb Fez and FAR Rabat, two of Morocco‘s top division teams, were squaring off in a game that I have absolutely never heard of entitled the “Throne Cup” when Askri stopped a penalty kick — or did he?  He certainly thought he had, as he began walking away and kissing the logo on his shirt in celebration.  The ball, however, was not finished rolling.  Check out the video of a Moroccan goalie celebrating a penalty kick save too early, courtesy of SI Hot Clicks:

Worse than English goalie Robert Green’s miscue?  Nah, no way.

ESPN Anchor Accidentally Lets Fans Know His Views on Citi Field

If you believe in the “Freudian slip,” you might be forced to conclude that ESPN anchor Anish Shroff isn’t a fan of the stadium where the New York Mets play their home games, Citi Field.  When ESPN broke from it’s regular broadcast of the Mets-Cardinals game on Wednesday night to bring viewers coverage of Alex Rodriguez making a bid for his 600th career home run — which we feel he doesn’t deserve the press for — Shroff had a bit of a slip-up when sending it back to New York after A-Rod doubled.  Pardon my English, but check out the video of ESPN anchor Anish Shroff calling Citi Field “Shitty Field,” courtesy of The Big Lead:

JC Penney Anticipated a Celtics Win

First it was Macy’s misspelling “Los Angeles” on their Lakers championships shirts. Now, it’s JC Penney screwing things up. We’ve already touched on how the media and clothing companies prepare two sets of products depending on the possible outcomes of a major sporting event. Department store JC Penney is no exception, and as ProBasketballTalk points out, they accidentally advertised Boston Celtics championship trophies in the LA Times. Here’s a screencap of the report from CBS2 in Los Angeles:

Yeah, I’m sure those would be really popular in Boston too. I guess the execs at JC Penney didn’t get the pre-Game 7 memo from Stern’s office saying the Lakers would win. Sure would have saved them a lot of money, not to mention embarrassment.
