Magic Johnson congratulates Abby Wambach, butchers her name
Magic Johnson thoughtfully shouted out Abby Wambach on social media Friday, but he made one big mistake.
The former Los Angeles Lakers great got Wambach’s first name wrong:
That’s pretty cringe-worthy, and amazingly Johnson still had not deleted the tweet several hours later.
It’s great that he thought enough of Wambach — the greatest women’s soccer player in our country’s history who retired this week — to shout her out, but what does it say about him if he doesn’t even know her name? It certainly diminishes his intent.
This has been a bad week of spelling involving Michigan State.
