This Week In Comical Graphics Screw Ups – 8/5

Last weekend we had quite a bit of fun going through some of the funny gaffes of the previous week that may have shown up online or on the telly.  We’re talking humorous misspellings, epic fails, or the math skills of Colin Cowherd.  This week we have an even better collection of Comical Graphics Screw Ups.

And finally from ESPNU and Mocksession, a Maryland running back decided to photobomb this South Florida preview…


That was your week in comical graphics screw ups, next time be careful out there!
