ESPN Needs to Learn Their Sports

Postby deerayfan072 » Wed Oct 29, 2008 12:41 pm

The Bucs gave Mike Alstott a tribute during the halftime of their MNF game against the Seahawks. ESPN the next day made fun of the Bucs for misspelling Alstotts name on his jersey that was used during the tribute. Apparently ESPN needs to learn their sports because the Bucs did that on purpose.

Why did the Bucs misspell Alstott's name on his jersey used during the halftime tribute?

The Bucs did it because for the first two games of Mike‘s Rookie season in 1996 his last name was misspelled on his jersey ‘Alsott‘
