Texsas our Texsas All Hail the Mighty State and to The University of
Texsas Fite! Texsas Fite!
I wonder who got fired over the media guide for the University of Texas. Below is the story as posted on the Internet. Just the facts as Joe Friday would say. And that phrase comes from what TV show?
“You would think that anyone handling media relations for the University of Texas football team would have the spelling of “Texas” down pat. Not only does the squad share the name with the great state, it says “Texas” on the team’s jerseys … and probably every single piece of stationery within their athletic department in Austin.
Still, when the Longhorns published their annual media guide online Thursday, there was a glaring typo; the footer on each page of player bios read: “www.texsasports.com.” With as many eyeballs as there are on the storied Big-12 program, the typo was quickly caught and fixed by the UT staff. But not before linguistic sticklers and Sooners fans seized the opportunity to capture screenshots and mock the error.
In the wake of the blunder, the domain http://www.texsasports.com seems to have been purchased by an opportunistic Oklahoma fan to broadcast a fitting message on the Red River rivalry.”
I would continue writing, but I am laughing too hard. So, mighty The University, how does it feel when you are on the wrong end of an embarrassment? You certainly did enough embarrassing toward other teams when you were at the top. Remember those you pass on the way up are the same ones you pass on the way down. Just the facts, Ma’am!
