Major Newspaper Mistakes MLS Team for Super Bowl Champs

So who won the Super Bowl last night? Well, if you’re the Daily Mail, it was the New England Revolution. New England’s MLS team has apparently switched sports, quite successfully I might add. I have never seen a team go from one sport to another, mid season, only to win the highest honors in the NFL. This will surely come as a boost to fans of the club after narrowly missing out on the MLS Cup.

Obviously, this was a typo by the Daily Mail, who meant to refer to the New England Patriots. That being said, no quarter can be given to this rag of a newspaper. The Super Bowl is a big event and it’s pretty clear who won. The smallest amount of research would have given them the right team, so it’s a lazy error.

The Daily Mail caught the error and edited the report after the fact, but not before one of our writers was able to get a screen shot. Enjoy.
