S. Carolina Kicker’s Jersey Missing ‘A’
It’s safe to say Under Armour didn’t bring its “A” game for the start of the 2013 college football season on Thursday night.
The apparel company that outfits South Carolina had an embarrassing gaffe as the Gamecocks’ game with North Carolina was broadcast nationally on ESPN. After a field goal by Gamecocks kicker Elliot Fry in the first quarter made the score 10-0, viewers noticed that Fry’s jersey was missing the final “A” in “CAROLINA” - leaving his to say “CAROLIN.”
It wasn’t as bad as the time two Washington Nationals trotted onto the baseball diamond with jerseys that read “Natinals,” but it’s certainly not the first impression Under Armour wanted to make this fall.
