Recently, the Lightning had egg on their face by presenting a local former sheriff a jersey spelled as, “sherriff.”
Turns out, they also misspelled their own name. The team is actually the “Tampa Bay Lighting,” with their logo being a dim bulb.
To make matters worse, upon looking into the rafters, their Eastern Conference championship banner for their last Stanley Cup appearance is dated 2051.
“Fans haven’t noticed anything, so we haven’t bothered raising the bar,” said an anonymous source within the organization. “This is paradise. We’re living the dream! It doesn’t matter- we won in 2004, so I think the league knows we lead in kwality around here.”
In unrelated sporting misspells, Tampa area fans were confused why they were seeing their baseball team city spelled, “Montréal.”
