Wizards get mistaken for MLS team



Perhaps this is an indication of how seriously the Los Angeles area regarded Tuesday night's showdown with the Wizards. Just before showing the game highlights, the "ABC7 Eyewitness News team" went ahead and treated viewers to the Kansas City Wizards's logo. The Kansas City Wizards play in MLS, and currently have zero players suspended indefinitely due to gun hijkinks.

The error might be forgivable iF THERE WASN'T A FREAKING SOCCER BALL on the logo.

ol' curt has some serious anchorman hair, thats for sure. agree with tom703, if there wasnt a soccer ball on the logo, it might be forgivable.

i'm sure the flunky they had doing graphics did a google search on wizards and copied the first logo that came up. lucky it wasnt a picture of harry potter. having lived in la and watched the local news, thats about par for the course out there.

Many have mistaken the Wizards for an NBA team, too.

The MLS Wizards are about to be locked out while the NBA Wizards are about to be locked up.

@SportzNut21, I think we can cut PowerBoater some slack this time. Clearly he was going for the funny, don't you think?

Kansas City Wizards actually play defense and routinely hold their opponents under 100 points.

Thx,

Jay!
