ESPN Shows Off Its (Lack Of) NASCAR Knowledge

Either that, or a certain perfectly coiffed, former Super Bowl winning coach has won the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship, without anyone knowing about it.

Sure it’s just a typo, albeit a rather unfortunate one, considering that JIMMIE Johnson has won 53 NASCAR Sprint Cup series races, five consecutive NASCAR titles, and the 2009 Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year.  But the error made its way to the airwaves during ESPN Sportscenter’s report of Johnson’s fifth straight championship.  Worse still is that ESPN was the network that actually broadcast the Ford 400 from the Homestead-Miami Speedway this past Sunday, which makes the misspelling of JJ’s name all that more glaring.

And if you ask me, Jimmie Johnson would have done much better on Survivor than Jimmy Johnson did—youth, as they say, would have been served.
