Mississippi IS a long word. M, I, crooked letter, crooked letter...you know
But somehow, the word "Mississippi" is misspelled on football
tickets printed by the University of Alabama for the team's Nov. 13 game vs.
It's missing a "p," or a humpback, if you're keeping track.
A media relations spokesperson called the snafu an "unfortunate oversight"
during the editing process.
Most single-game tickets will be corrected, university spokesman Doug Walker
told the AJC. But season tickets have already been distributed.
Maybe college football fans will cut the Crimson Tide some slack for the
spelling error. The team is, after all, a national champion.
Or is that "chamion?"
Editor's Note: This story was spellchecked five times.
