The Denver Post made an embarrassing flub in the Friday edition of its newspaper, and the Philadelphia Phillies were quick to have some fun with it.
With the Colorado Rockies hosting their home opener on Friday, the Denver Post ran a feature entitled “The Ultimate Visitors Guide to Coors Field.” Notice anything a little off about the photo they used?

Unfortunately, that is Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia — not Coors Field. The mistake was brutal enough, but the person in charge of the Phillies’ Twitter account decided to sprinkle a little salt in the wound:

What a lovely photo of Citizens Bank Park.

As we know, newspaper mistakes happen. Some are bigger than others, which we saw about a year ago when MLB legend Keith Hernandez had his name come up in a very disturbing context. Needless to say, Opening Day 2018 for the Rockies is already a memorable one.
