(CBS) By now, having led his team to the Super Bowl, you’d have thought everyone knew how to spell the name of Seahawks star quarterback Russell Wilson.

The only problem? The billboard misspelled Wilson’s first name. For the record, there are two Ss and two Ls. Here’s the proof of the mishap, courtesy of @DanBParksJr on Twitter.
