Post FAIL: Philly Macy's Runs Ad Saying Congrats on Back-to-Back Phillies' Championships

macy’s ad declares phillies as winner

Quote:
AP: Inquirer Sorry For Phillies Ad

The AP reports the Philadelphia Inquirer has apologized to readers for printing a Macy?s ad celebrating the Philadelphia Phillies victory over the Yankees in the World Series.

MyFoxPhilly.com first reported on the Macy?s ad in today?s Inquirer. The newspaper later issued a statement, says the AP, that deeply apologized for the error.

Slideshow: Newspaper Ad Gives Series To Phillies

The New York Yankees have a commanding 3-1 lead in the Series over the Phillies

The ad features a T-shirt from Majestic that has a giant logo, with ?Philadelphia Phillies 2009 Back-to-Back World Series champions.?

The same T-shirt is not for sale on Macy?s Web site.

The Phillies won the World Series in 2008.






Reminds me of this:

I kind of think the title of this thread is a FAIL.

What am I bitter about? I could care less about the Phillies just thought the title is a bit long.

They ran the ad when their team is down 3-1...I'd call that a fail.

I wish. Anything to shut the trap of Yankees fans. They're almost as bad as Cowboys fans. (Hah. Sorry to the Yankees fans on the board. )

I hate the Phillies too though because.. Well.. They're Phillies. But they are the lesser of two evils. So GO PHILLIES!

Not a chance!
Is Cliff Lee pitching the remainder of the games?

Believe me, I'm surrounded by Phillies fans and they are FAR worse than Yankees fans.

I'm rooting for the Phils to lose just so I don't have to hear them at work. It's been unbearable listening to their crap after the two games that Cliff Lee won for them.

(Plus, my wife is from NY)
