Natinals Make NBC News

So congratulations are in order for the Nats' Department of Spelling, Proofreading, Copy Editing, Grammatical Mishaps and Quality Control. Their hard work earned D.C.'s ball club a prime spot on NBC News Saturday evening. I wasn't able to see the broadcast, though a friend did, which led me to this daily news highlight clip from Saturday morning. I'm assuming the NBC News version was somewhat similar. They jump pretty quickly from pirates (the serious kind with guns and all that) to making fun of the Nats.

In case you don't feel like watching, here's a transcript:

Finally, is there a spellchecker in the stadium? At last night's Marlins versus Nationals game, the Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn wore uniforms with their team misspelled. Look closely, see that? You see it's Nat-in-als? Where's the 'O' everybody? Anyway, later in the game both players changed into correctly spelled uniforms. Uh oh. I'm thinking somebody is in big trouble. Isn't that crazy?

It's a crazy world, all right.

UPDATE: Apparently these clips only stay up for 24 hours, so it's gone. But trust me, that was the transcript.

This clip just talks about the weather.

Passive aggressiveness vis a vis that team from Baltimore.

Someone working for a newspaper that has pretty much fired all its copy editors should be very, very wary of ragging on ANYONE regarding spelling mistakes.

Nunof1, that might be valid if the top of the paper said "Washingtn Post."

The $600+ million stadium that didn't put in 20k this weekend could have been spent on a soccer stadium that cost $400 million less, and the rest could have gone to booze and strippers.

Way to go, DC.
