With social media as prevalent as ever, the margin for error for the likes of news anchors, play-by-play commentators and radio hosts is as thin as ever. Well, one particular newscaster made a blunder for the ages while dissecting the Texans' convincing win over the Patriots on Sunday night. While discussing the SNF clash, the female news anchor regrettably stated that Deshaun Watson and Co. led the game "for all four innings."
Oh no. That's simply a mistake you can't afford to make.
As expected, Twitter trolls pounced on the blooper, and one jokester swiftly acknowledged that the Texans emerged victorious thanks to their astounding efficiency from the three-point line.
Regardless of whether this was an error on the teleprompter, this news anchor surely has to be aware that football is played in quarters, rather than innings.
She'll certainly be regretting this on-air gaffe, especially after the video made its rounds on Twitter.
