A reader (Erin) wrote in to notify me of something I missed during my drugged up haze on Monday Night. Part the way through the game, MNF came back from commercial showing the shots from the city like they always do. Well they took a close up of Philadelphia’s City Hall and Tirico stated….
“Ben Franklin high above the city of Philadelphia”
Well you would think that in one of the thousands of production meetings that someone could have told them that it’s not Ben Franklin it’s William Penn….you know like PENNsylvania. Good stuff….see you later with the baseball lowlights (Berman).
(Update: TJ from Gheorghe: The Blog has noted that Tirico has apologized. Wasn’t really his fault, and he’s not going to throw his network under the bus, but it’s still pretty funny.)
