Perhaps Scripps should rethink the location of their annual National Spelling Bee competition.
The Washington Redskins first pre-season game found starting running back Ladell Betts(due to Clinton Portis not playing) wearing a jersey with his name spelled wrong. Instead, the jersey dawned the name Bettis, the last name of a future hall of fame running back.
This of course marks the second huge blunder for a Washington D.C team regarding misspellings on uniforms. The first coming earlier this year when the Washington Nationals misspelled their team name as “Natinals,” back in early April.
The Nationals received a ton of flack for this, with the Redskins it has just been shrugged off. That just goes to show you the difference between an average team and an awful team.
