It’s Pretty Sad When Sport’s Illustrated

…makes an error this obvious

Georgia’s David Thoms (7), is tagged out stealing second base by Stanford shortstop Jake Schlander in the fifth inning of an NCAA College World Series game in Omaha, Nebraska. (AP Photo)
First, the guy sliding is from the University of Miami, not Georgia.
And how often does a shortstop wear full catcher’s gear to tag someone out at second base (or any place)?
Remember, folks, AP and SI are the professionals.

    (Snort). Not to mention the names are wrong, it’s Florida State and not Stanford, and the Miami player was safe instead of tagged out.
    But other than that…
    Yeah, yeah, somebody obviously got a caption mixed up from another photo. It’s still a pretty glaring error. I thought these people had grownups keeping an eye on things.

    Looks as if somebody went on vacation and left the summer interns in charge.

    I’m going to guess that your “Sport’s Illustrated” in the title was an intentional glaring error… 😉

    Since I’m already in the process of updating the resume for the openings in the Mets organization, I’ll just shoot a copy over to SI.

    I’m guessing the intern responsible for this went to Florida.
