Find The Typo: What Gives Away The Fact That It's ESPNU Campus Connection Week?

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Ahh ESPNU Campus Connection Week. Where young aspiring broadcasters and production folk get the wonderful opportunity to work with the best in the business! College kids from all walks of life get to participate in broadcasts across the Country, and some are actually pretty good on-air. In fact you wouldn't even know there was a difference between the amateurs and the pros, unless you were paying really close attention....


Those Jounralism Majors are getting such a great opportunity and hands on experience during CC Week! All kidding aside though, I think it's a great idea and would have jumped at the chance when I was back in School. Hey, and for all we know, that could have been a full-time, 40-year old ESPN employee who doesn't know how to spell Journalism.

I bet that Chris Berman can't spell journalism. I bet that Emmitt Smiff can't pronounce it either.

Spell Check anyone?

Spell check is turned off on Journalism-school computers.

All the more reason to read what you write before you publish!

By the way, Maryland J-lism > UNC J-lism!

Our journalism computers definitely have spell check. Why not use the technology that will be there in the career world?

Where were these guys for me at Southern Utah University? I guess it's because my Thunderbirds suck and that's why I'm working in rural Utah now.

So, what's the problem? Does she spell it "Sarah" or something?

No, journalism was spelled "jounralism." And another thing, why is it that there are so many quotation marks that are used incorrectly? ie: 'Balance of Power' instead of "Balance of Power" or maybe it is right.

Listen, you need to give them a break. Sara is a smiling Tar Heel and if the ESPN graphics writer had spelled journalism correctly, poor Sara would have realized that she'd been spelling it wrong through her entire life and would have been devastated. ESPN is just dumbing down to make shortbus Tar Heels feel like they belong.
