'Bama misspells `Mississippi' on football tickets

By  | 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama football has the national
championship trophy and a newly expanded stadium that seats 101,000
people. Now, if it just had spellcheck.

Alabama tickets for the upcoming season include an embarrassing
mistake: The university misspelled the word "Mississippi" on
tickets for the Nov. 13 home game against Mississippi State, using
just one `p' instead of two.

Alabama sports publicist Doug Walker said Thursday there was
what he calls an "unfortunate oversight" during the editing
process. He says officials are reviewing what happened and trying
to prevent the same thing from occurring again in the future.
