During yesterday's preseason game between the Redskins and Ravens, Jerome Bettis came back from retirement. Only not really.
Actually, the people who make Redskins uniforms had a jersey malfunction. Ladell Betts, for 8/13/09, became Ladell Bettis. Only in D.C. can this stuff happen on a regular basis.
Betts' thoughts on the error?
"Actually, I do like Jerome Bettis, but I don't prefer to have his name on my back," he said. "I wasn't upset or anything. I think the equipment people felt bad, but I wasn't mad at them."
Betts finished Thursday's game with 17 total yards on 5 touches. Looks like the Bettis name didn't do much for him, which is a real shame.
Thanks to Yahoo, D.C. Sports Blog, and the Nationals Enquirer for spreading the name news!
