Fail: Redskins' Ladell Betts has name misspelled on back of jersey

By Chris Chase

Four months after the Washington Nationals sent two players onto the field with "NATINLS" written across their jerseys, the NFL team in the nation's capital is following suit. Washington Redskins running back Ladell Betts played last night's preseason game in Baltimore with his last name misspelled on the back of his jersey:

Hmm ... Maybe it wasn't as much of a mistake as it was a Freudian slip by the Redskins equipment staff. As evidenced by the 2008 stats that were displayed on screen, Betts could certainly stand to be more like Jerome Bettis.

After the game, Betts was informed of the error and told Dan Steinberg of the DC Sports Bog:

"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."

With his "I ain't mad at cha" attitude, Betts is like a modern day 2pac. Perhaps his understanding will result in a nice thankk ewe noat frum tha ekwipment staf.
