Panic on the Streets of Boston

The Celtics won the NBA championship last night, and there was chaos on the streets of Boston. Riot police scare me, but things stayed relatively tame. However, this T-shirt, which my friend Dave found on the NBA store site, is worth rioting over:

In case you can't read the small print on the front of the shirt, it says "Where Raising 17 Banners Happen." I know that T-shirt companies often have to print championship apparel in a hurry, but that subject-verb disagreement is unforgivable. It's a shame because the T-shirt would be really cool if it weren't for that error!

Grammatical errors aside, I am thrilled for the Celtics. A truly classy group of guys destroyed the Lakers to win the team's 17th championship last night.

That is horrible. Good find. I'm sure they've sold several hundred, probably thousands, and that a very small percentage of the buyers have noticed.

Oh my! That's bad! I'm sure the people who buy it are so excited about the win that they wouldn't care even if they did notice!

I love picking out these kinds of errors in my local newspaper and other publications. Seems to be happening far too often these days!
