NESN Falls Victim To Fake Article About Urlacher Signing One Day Contract With Packers

NESN had quite the blunder today during a college baseball game.  On their TV telecast they ran a ticker at the bottom of the screen which stated that Brian Urlacher signed a one-day deal with the Packers.  Why would they do that when it isn’t true?  The reason is because ran a hilarious story which said that Urlacher was doing so, butit was obviously in jest as with most articles on a satirical website.  Whoops…

Here is SportsPickle’s article entitled: Brian Urlacher Retires as a Green Bay Packer: “I just wanted to go out a winner” and below is the brilliant screencap of the blunder.
