Early Edition of The Boston Globe Runs Incorrect Outcome of Super Bowl LI


Deadlines are the worst.

The Boston Globe had no choice but to run what they figured would be the final outcome of Super Bowl LI, claiming that the Falcons won. Obviously that wasn't the case. The Patriots came back in historical fashion and the rest was history. Unfortunately, some early edition subscribers got the wrong outcome on their doorstep the next morning.

It makes you wonder why papers don't push the deadline back for the Super Bowl.
