What Genius spell-checked that shirt?

amerpundit on March 30, 2007 at 9:43 PM

And no one in West Virgina noticed.

lorien1973 on March 30, 2007 at 9:44 PM

Gold.

Heh being from West Virginia I guess we won the NITwit tournament.

But then this is the same West Virginia that re elects Bobby Byrd and Jay Rockefeller.

Printing NIT Championship shirts…another job Americans will not do.

EnochCain on March 30, 2007 at 9:57 PM

They really snatched that trophy.

mikeyboss on March 30, 2007 at 9:57 PM

Certainly deserved it, though. They consistently took it to the hole with authority.

What’s this?

In the company apology:

“we inadvertently used in incorrect image.”

They can’t even get that spelled correctly…

JetBoy on March 30, 2007 at 10:13 PM

Man, if only they’d left the “s” out of “West” also.

mikeyboss on March 30, 2007 at 10:16 PM

I think the new spelling is a great idea. This gets them out if the shadow of the real Virginia.

billy on March 30, 2007 at 10:42 PM

To be fair, it IS harder to spell that Clesmon.

SouthernGent on March 30, 2007 at 10:54 PM

That explains the high birth rate. Women have kids through their west and east virginas there.

SailorDave on March 30, 2007 at 11:32 PM

Is this some clever way to get around Title 9?

Coyote D. on March 30, 2007 at 11:46 PM

Oh crap…that doesn’t help the image. Now as a partisan from the best state in the union for libertarians, I’ll put up a defense.

Most folks on the coasts don’t even know West Virginia is an actual state, so I don’t want too much finger pointin’ for bad spellin! I’m serious – my co-workers in Boston, NY and Phi and DC still can’t get it straight: “Western Virginia” “Virginia” “Pennsyltucky”…

BTW: Besides Florida, WVU has had the best performance over the last three years of any div-1 school in basketball and football combined – based on final rankings at seasons end. I could be wrong – any takers?

Best coaches at WVU by far.

Mike, you need to know you just made me piss myself from laughter.

mikeyboss on March 30, 2007 at 10:00 PM

Eh, they look like p*ssies to me.

ReubenJCogburn on March 31, 2007 at 1:52 AM

Is their mascot the “Beavers”, or “Camel Toe”?

PinkyBigglesworth on March 31, 2007 at 2:42 AM

This may very well be [schiavone]THE BEST THREAD IN THE HISTORY OF OUR GREAT SPORT!™[/schiavone]

fusionaddict on March 31, 2007 at 11:40 AM

So when are they playing the Gamecocks?

Enrique on March 31, 2007 at 11:40 AM

Schiavone?

He does remind me of a female body part…

Enrique on March 31, 2007 at 11:42 AM

forest: When the winner of the national championship is determined by the final rankings at the end of the season, we’ll let you know. :)

icelandicfarmer on March 31, 2007 at 12:42 PM

Wow, a Monday Nitro reference on Hot Air. What do you think the odds are that wrestling is considered too gauche by the Kosacks? I mean, I know it’s no Vagina Monologues and all that, but hey, it’s popular in West Virgina!

KGB on March 31, 2007 at 1:51 PM

I work at the University of Virginia, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made that typo, which I’ve come to regard as some kind of triple oxymoron all folded into one word. Don’t make me spell it out.

smellthecoffee on March 31, 2007 at 11:51 PM

Don’t make me spell it out.

smellthecoffee on March 31, 2007 at 11:51 PM

I’ll bite………….

Spell it out!

PinkyBigglesworth on April 1, 2007 at 2:06 AM

OK. Ain’t no virgin vagina at the U of Virginia

smellthecoffee on April 1, 2007 at 10:04 AM

Congratulations, Wet Virginans! LOLPAOM!
