Just gets better and better with this lame FO. Wow... http://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2015/8/1/9084873/los-angeles-lakers-shi rt-night-****-giveaway Everyone has made an embarrassing typo at some point in their lives. For the Lakers, it came Saturday afternoon when they tried to promote a shirt giveaway at an upcoming Lakers Night at Dodger Stadium. One problem: There's no 'r' in team, but you need one in the word shirt to avoid some unfortunate phrasing: The shirt looks fine, but if they want to go the other route, here's some other "stuff" they can give away at Lakers Night: The presentation notes from their first meeting with LaMarcus Aldridge this summer. Their #StayDH12 billboards. Unsold LaMarcus....

Wait, what does the FO have to do with a twitter account? If you want to vent there are thousands of threads here for that, but this is a horrible thread.

Exactly lol. The FO doesn't run the twitter account.

But that is also why you don't have an intern do it either like some companies.

LMAO!!! That's pretty damn funny if you ask me! I screen captured the tweet so it can be immortalized! Mistakes happen, even with the biggest organizations and great proof readers. This just happens to be one of the funniest I have read in terms of a PR mistake in a long time! I certainly wouldn't weigh too heavily on it though but it's damn funny if you ask me!

They're still responsible. They are doing a Dodger tie in event. That's a pretty big deal in this town. Point is, training staff is suspect, GM is suspect, now even their PR dept is screwing up. Ok just a silly thing, but to me it typifies what's going on with this team. I guess it really is hard to get good help nowadays.

No the FO is still not responsible for the twitter account.

They're responsible for hiring the pple who are responsible for the Twitter account. And if you don't get that this trend of poor attention and work ethic is endemic to the Lakers franchise as a whole, then you're missing a very important piece of what's wrong with this team. Either way, don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger.

No big deal IMO. Even though it's a typo, with it it sounded fine like they were trying to inject some ATTITUDE. E.g. get this sh*t for free when you buy a pair at full price!

If you read that tweet in Samuel L. Jackson's voice, it actually sounds pretty legit to me.

They spelled tickets wrong too... Damn FO! I'll care (more or less) when this season's record speaks for itself.

What YOU mean by FO is Jimmy and Mitch. And again, No they have nothing to do with the twitter account.

You are taking an intern's missing of typing one letter and twisting it into a weird thing regarding the roster.

Don't make something out of nothing. I'm sure Mitch, Jimmy, and Jeanie didn't even interview this person, they have more important things to do.
