Great Moments in Misspelled Names on Jerseys

Jun 7, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

When I worked in offices and someone’s key card stopped working we just to joke that it was a sly way of the firm telling them that they’ve been fired.

I wonder if baseball teams do this with jerseys. If so, Jeff Manship, you should probably update your resume:

    Natinals!

      Maybe that was MLB’s attempt at doing an under-the-radar contraction of the team…

        I like that idea… contraction 1 letter at a time. Tell Budsy to start with the A’s, they’ll be gone in a month and SF can establish an armored guard around the entire Bay Area to prevent teams from encroaching on their turf.

    Nothing will ever beat “natinals”

      Maybe, but if the “Barves” get on a hot streak, beware

    There are some names in baseball that are hard to spell. “Manship” is not one of them.

    Looks like that manship has sailed.

    Not a joke…. my first real IT job worked this way. if you key card didnt work someone ultimately let you in and directed you to HR to “get a new card” you were then escorted out by security. good times.

      That’s insane. And unprofessional.

      • number42is1 - Jun 7, 2012 at 11:25 AM

        nope.. the unprofessional part is when they fired the head of HR and CTO on the same Memorial day friday without telling them. we were all out having drinks and got the email from the boss stating that they were fired and everyone had this awkward look on their faces. when i got back to the office and was covering the overnight i get a call from both of them that their remote access was not working. I was instructed by the CEO to ask them to check their personal email (gmail, yahoo…) for their new passwords. when they checked there was an email stating that they had been let go.

        THAT’S UNPROFESSIONAL!

        Client of mine, outside sales guy, on a conference call 4 days before Christmas with 20 or so other sales guys, all laid off in the same conference call.

        That seemed like an unprofessional culling to me.

        @heyblueyoustink
        I worked for a company in the 80’s that fired half the company (we are talking about thousands of people here) in a national videoconference to field offices in a speech about a new strategic corporate direction….and those of us that they weren’t firing would have to “reapply” for our jobs.
        This was within a year of the time they had had a national meeting to redefine the corporate culture in terms of one big “family”. Who knew they meant we were in-laws?
        Just another Dilbert moment in a long corporate career.

    My favorite was from a couple of years ago when Giants infielder Eugenio Velez wore a road uni that read “San Francicso”
