Miami Newspaper Runs Ad Congratulating Heat For Winning Championship

CHICAGO (CBS) The Miami Herald ran an ad in Monday’s paper congratulating the Heat on winning the NBA Championship, the only problem is that they didn’t, the Dallas Mavericks did.

“Congratulations Miami!,” the Macy’s ad said. “Celebrate the 2011 NBA Champions with official merchandise.”

To make matter worse for the newspaper, the ad ran directly below a story about the lackluster performance of the Heat’s point guard, as well as, in all caps: “DALLAS WINS BEST-OF-7 SERIES 4-2.”

The 105-95 win gave the Mavericks their first NBA Title in franchise history.

    Brilliant strategy to sell newspapers, or poor quality control? Either way, nice to see the Heat get the beat down they deserved!

      Poor QC, Macy’s will not have to pay for that near full page ad, and that’s big bucks in a decent sized city.

    Looks like the Miami Herald will have a graphics/typesetter/editor position open in the near future…
