[B][U]AP: Inquirer Sorry For Phillies Ad[/U][/B]

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.

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. :D

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? :D

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)
