Phillies Win Again

Don't believe everything you read in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Today’s print edition features a three-quarter-page Macy’s ad congratulating the Philadelphia Phillies on winning back-to-back World Series titles.

Unfortunately for Macy’s, the Inquirer and all Phillies fans, Philadelphia is currently behind in the series three games to one and faces elimination tonight. 

The Inquirer has apologized for the mistake, saying it "deeply regrets this error.”  

This reminds me of the time when the Tampa Bay Tribune published an editorial which asserted that the Tampa Bay Lightning lost game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. (In fact, the Lightning defeated the Calgary Flames.)
