It’s time for Screengrab Snafus!  Brace yourself, this is the biggest week of snafus ever.  The networks were really on top form this week for our collective enjoyment.

We begin with two screengrabs from 30fps.  First, CSN paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100 point game.  What better way to pay tribute to a legend of the game than botching the spelling of his name…


Mike Breen has been our guest on the AA Podcast a couple times, but I don’t remember him saying anything about beginning to wear bowties.  Something else doesn’t seem right about his appearance though, and I can’t quite put my finger on it…


Once you get out of the BCS conferences, it may be difficult to tell which conference is which.  You have the Ohio Valley, Missouri Valley, MAC, MAAC, and MEAC, Big Sky, Big West, and something called the Great West (which is news to me).  So, maybe we should give ESPN a pass for not being able to keep their Atlantic Sun straight from their Atlantic 10 (via matteise)…

From Cam comes this screengrab from SportsCenter depicting a busy night for the Pacers.  It is Spring Training season, so perhaps their Split Squads were in action…


To my recollection, this is at least the third separate time ESPN has found a way to misspell Oklahoma (h/t richiewhitt)…


We got this e-mail from Aaron L. on three separate snafus from ESPN’s broadcast of Valpo-Butler:

“The graphics guys had a rough night last night with the Valpo-Butler game on ESPNU.  20-10 is not .750, I’m not sure what state Younstown is located in, and a 6’8″ bald guy with multitudes of tattoos is definitely not Andrew Smeathers.”




And finally, one of the great all-time snafus from our friends at Puck Drunk Love.  Manny Ramirez as a member of the Calgary Flames.  And he just looks so happy to be there, too…


That was your week in Screengrab Snafus, next time be careful out there!
