The White House made a mistake ahead of the Boston Red Sox’ visit on Thursday that the internet won’t soon let it forget.
On both the White House’s official website and its YouTube channel, a headline was displayed welcoming the “Red Socks” for their 2018 World Series celebration.
It’s not an error that spellcheck would catch, but it’s an error nonetheless. The small snafu was reportedly fixed shortly after 9 a.m. Eastern Time, but it was up long enough for screenshots to be grabbed — and we all know screenshots last forever.
The Boston Red Sox are scheduled to visit the White House to celebrate their 2018 World Series victory on Thursday, but as has become the norm as of late, many star players have revealed they won’t be going.
Starting pitcher David Price is among those who will not be in attendance, alongside Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr., reigning American League Most Valuable Player Mookie Betts and manager Alex Cora, including others.
Price stated that his reasoning for not visiting the White House was simply because “it’s baseball season,” but on Monday, he took to Twitter to seemingly make another comment on the matter.
The 2017 Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins were honored at the White House for the second year in a row on Tuesday — but this roster’s trip was slightly different than the last.
After rescinding an invitation for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors to visit the White House, President Donald Trump tweeted that the Penguins were still welcome for their ceremony. Team captain Sidney Crosby stated that the trip was “an opportunity” for himself and his teammates.
The 30-year-old Crosby has made the celebratory trip to the White House after each of his three championships in a Penguins jersey.
