Redskins cheerleaders have their "Natinals" moment

By Dan Steinberg


Yes, these are some Redskins cheerleaders during a recent community appearance.

No, I didn't grow up dreaming of being a copy editor of shirts.

Yes, I've independently verified that this is not a doctored photo.

Well, yes, the pink stuff is doctored (not by me). No, the "Redsikins" part isn't.

Yes, I'm completely inviting the world to pore over every word I write for the many typos, and to shove them in my face, like so: "In your face, Bog Boy!"

No, the original headline "Cheerleader Wardrobe Malfunction" was probably not the best choice of words.

It's a good thing the WaPo never screws anything up. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/28/the-washington-post-mista_n_555421.html

Looks like the extra "I" was meant to overlap the back vertical line in "K" where the two sides of the jacket meet...this could just be poor QC on the manufacturer's part. Seem's like they're just a little off.

They messed up on the button placement.

Earlier this year we also saw the "San Francicso" Giants.

It's not really a legitimate "controversy" when so few people are on one side of an issue. According to polls, less than 10% of Native Americans are offended by the team name Redskins.

I think MyOpinionIs has it right but the jackets look to be cut specifically for women so either this is a "Natinals" moment or really bad craftsmanship.

"According to polls...," eh?
"There are lies, damn lies, and statistics" [or, in this case, polls].

Stay informed.

Those girls made the jackets themselves? Impressive. I wonder how they got the Reebok tags on them? They must have all the time in the world, making their own jackets like that.

SMH at this "article"

I recall the Post once referring to a military Medal of Commendation as a Medal of "Accomodation". As if they gave them out to make people feel good about showing up at their war.
