What is it about baseball season that brings out the worst in typing skills?
Today’s entry follows on the heels of that amazing trio of flubs from Thursday’s home opener for the Washington Nationals.
Fox Sports TV graphics folks need a copy editor to keep them from making horrendous goofs like this one:

Thanks much to the anonymous young lady who posted it to Twitpic Friday and to the superb Gerri Berendzen of the Quincy (Ill.) Herald-Whig who pointed it out for me last night.
You know who else needs copy editors? Local TV news operations. Chicago’s WMAQ-TV in particular. And other local TV news operations. And Baseball jersey manufacturers. And Kansas State University. And the New York Jets, the Minnesota Vikings, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Washington Nationals (boy, do they need a copy editor). And college athletic department ticket offices. And the Virginia general assembly. And college alumni magazines. And pharmacies. And the makers of Sudafed. And Borders bookstore. And Tea Party candidates. And city and county Boards of Elections. And government agencies. And South African traffic cops. And Google Newsâ€™ â€˜bots. And billboard companies. And sign painters.Â And rubber stamp designers. And restaurants, breakfast joints, Chinese restaurants and cake decorators. And South Africa’s New Age newspaper. And the Washington Post, the New York Times, the New York Post, the Chicago Sun-Times (Hey! A repeat offender!), the Virginian-Pilot, the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Carbondale, Ill., Southern Illinoisian, CNN and Time magazine. And newspapers in the U.K. And drive-in movie theater managers. And Home Depot and manufacturers of â€œhoodies.â€ And T-shirt designers.Â And road paving contractors.
