Well, this is awkward
We all make mistakes but some, especially to sports fans, are unforgivable.
Coming on the heels of referring to Boston as the "Red Socks" in a press release, The White House issued another statement calling them the "World Cup Series Champions." As you can imagine, sports fans and media alike were not going to let them live this one down.
First, the White House calls them the “Red Socks.” Now, they seem to be the “World Cup Series Champions” pic.twitter.com/oiZztyufs5— Jonathan Lemire (@JonLemire) May 9, 2019
I know there are bigger issues to focus on than clerical errors by WH staff, but a trifecta today:— Eli Stokols (@EliStokols) May 9, 2019
1. “The Red Socks”
2. Massachusetts “Instutution” of Technology
3. The “World Cup Series Champions” pic.twitter.com/At1vwd1CXE
This White House is breathtakingly incompetent. They can’t even invite a baseball team to the White House without messing up. They called them the Red “Socks” and then referred to them as the “World Cup Series” champions. Not exactly reassuring given everything else they oversee. https://t.co/Y1n2dhdoYl— Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) May 9, 2019
LMAO. Congrats to the 2018 World Cup Series Champions — the Boston Red Socks.— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) May 9, 2019
Big shout out to whoever in the White House Press Office hates the Red Sox as much as I do. Well played. pic.twitter.com/HGzsRGDZMr
We have to get someone in The White House an ESPN subscription.
