Macy's Congratulates the Phillies on Winning the World Series

In the World of Jinxes This Can't Be Good

By Published on .

The Philadelphia Inquirer and Macy's will both be charged with an error for an ad that ran in today's edition of the Inquirer. Said ad congratulates the Phillies for winning back-to-back championships and depicts a kick-ass 2009 World Series champions t-shirt. I'm sure the horribly superstitious baseball players really appreciate the mistake. Then again, if the Phillies do end up winning, expect similar ad mistakes in the future.
