Miami TV anchor Sasha Andrade calls 76ers ’69ers’ (Video)
Sasha Andrade of WPLG, an ABC affiliate in Miami, mistakenly called the 76ers the 69ers. We’re not sure where she got “69ers” out of 76ers, but we’re guessing it was either some sort of Freudian slip, or she got them confused with the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers.
The good news for Andrade is that the Celtics won Game 7 to eliminate the 76ers, meaning she won’t have to worry about repeating the mistake.
She shouldn’t feel too badly — we’ve seen much worse.
