"Mississippi" Spelled Wrong On Alabama Tickets

There are 43 comments on the WREG story from Aug 13, 2010, titled "Mississippi" Spelled Wrong On Alabama Tickets. In it, WREG reports that:

When you were young you may have been heard someone say, "M-i-crooked s-crooked s-i-crooked s-crooked s-p-p-i" when remembering how to spell " Mississippi." Apparently someone at the University of Alabama forgot that trick when making up the football tickets for the upcoming season.

As a Mississippi resident, but a lifelong University of Alabama fan, I don't think it's that big of a deal. Misspellings happen!!! In fact, I have noticed many misspellings on tickers that run across the screen, from all new stations. It just happens.

From the last sentence in this news article:

"You can bet the misspelling with be prominent on shirts and signs come game day."

...with be...? Huh?

Also, "during the ticket making process?" Wouldn't it sound better to just say, "when the tickets were printed?"

Give em' a break!

If the ticket processor is an devoted Alabama fan, he/she was excited about the upcoming season, not about being grammatically correct!

It seems as if WREG got it wrong also, I've also been told it was M I crooked letter crooked letter I crooked letter crooked letter I hump back hump back I. This is the last thing WREG needs to be writting about mis spelling, if you look at over half of their postings not only are words mis spelled, the grammor is even worse.
