It’s Friday and Screengrab Snafus are back!  There are a ton of graphical gaffes to get to, so let’s get started, shall we?

Let’s begin with something called the American Copy Editors Society (or ACES as the clever acronym may be).  I love it!  These people live for snafus of every kind!!!  Just check their database at the bottom of the page!  Nice to see that the fine folks there have turned some of their attention to ESPN for not one, but two screengrabs from the mothership that don’t show the classiest examples of copy editing ever seen…



Reader TlkSuperStation caught this snafu from NFL Network on the 15-1 Packers and a possible name change that happened for the 2003 Playoffs…


Some of the early bowls may not have had the biggest ratings or the best attendance, but at least there were giant gobs of cotton candy available!


One of the writers at Buckeye blog Eleven Warriors caught this snafu from The Scott Van Pelt Show after the Orange Bowl.  Michigan is going to really be a challenge moving forward if they’re winning multiple bowls in the same season.  And setting offensive records for games they didn’t even play in!  Now that’s an impressive feat…


Can you spot what’s wrong with this screengrab from The Herd when they were talking to College Gameday host Chris Fowler about the BCS National Championship Game?  (h/t @Lemonade_Vodka & @jeffmatthews)


And finally, you didn’t think we’d miss this legendary snafu, did you?


That was your week in Screengrab Snafus, next time be careful out there!  Especially if you happen to herniate your… well… nevermind…
