It's Friday, so let's go off the reservation a little bit (or more than usual).
Let's play a game. Take a look at the graphic below -- actually aired during a Kansas City Royals game on Fox Sports Kansas City -- and tell me what's wrong with it. I'll wait.

You good? Alright. Well, of course, the most egregious error (with a local twist!) is that whoever created this graphic believed that Bryce Harper is actually "Bryce Hunter" and that he plays for the Detroit Tigers, who I believe will be upset with the fact that he's wearing a Nationals hat.
That's not all, though. Here are some other mistakes:
- "Matt Jones" is a former NFL wide receiver who had trouble with the law and is now working as a radio personality in Arkansas. That's not Matt Jones. That's Matt Harvey and he plays for the Mets, not the Orioles.
- Manny Machado (semi-local twist!) plays for the Orioles, not the White Sox.
- Mike Trout plays for the Angels, though he'll play for the Yankees eventually. They always do...
So if you're struggling to be productive on the last day before a three-day holiday weekend, just remember that no matter how poorly you do your job today, someone's doing it worse.
