Soccer Player Mistakenly Thanks His Wife AND Girlfriend On Live TV

A Ghanaian soccer star may be in the doghouse after giving an awkward live TV interview where he mistakenly thanked his wife and girlfriend.

Mohammed Anas, who plays for South Africa’s Free State Stars, had just been named “man of the match” when he made the Freudian slip of the tongue during a post-game interview Friday night.

“Firstly I appreciate my fans,” Mohammed Anas began, “and my wife and my girlfriend.”

Within seconds of catching his mistake, he quickly backtracked with some nervous-sounding laughter.

“I mean my wife, sorry for saying, I’m so sorry, my wife,” he said. “I love you so much. I love you so much from my heart.”

The 22-year-old scored twice during the South African Premier Division game, the Telegraph reported. But his gaffe left internet users wondering what may have been going on off field.

Here’s hoping the “man of the game” is still “man of the house”?

CNN Mistakenly Circulates Prewritten Fidel Castro Text. Again.

CNN blew it for the TKTKTK time this week. [[NOTE: Insert number of blunders on Monday.]]

OK, so the network probably didn’t actually air 30 minutes of pornography on Thanksgiving night, but it did accidentally publish a few editor’s notes alongside its obituary of Cuba’s former leader Fidel Castro on Saturday.

The text ― which could still be read on some sites that published the story off the wire and didn’t correct the error ― instructs the story’s writer to make changes if former President George H.W. Bush dies:

One Castro or another has ruled Cuba over a period that spans seven decades and 11 U.S. presidents. Fidel Castro outlived six of those presidents, [[[NOTE: change to seven if George H.W. Bush dies before Castro]]] including Cold War warriors John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

To its credit, the note isn’t wrong. But Bush Sr. is still very much alive.

CNN’s gaffe wouldn’t even be noteworthy, had it not made a similar mistake with a prewritten Castro obit more than a decade ago. In 2003, the site mistakenly gave readers access to a small database of obituary drafts and graphics, The Smoking Gun reported at the time.

The graphic for the late Cuban strongman included placeholder text that called Castro a “lifeguard, athlete, movie star, governor, president” alongside a quote, “Life is just one grand sweet song, so start the music.” All that text had appeared in the obituary of former President Ronald Reagan.

News outlets often write obituaries in advance for world leaders, celebrities and other noteworthy people, including The Huffington Post. Giving one publication guff for going live with a mistake might be a little unfair, as premature publication has a long, storied history in journalism

It’s a funny, sobering, accidental tradition that has allowed famous folk from Sharon Osbourne to “Astronaut Neil Young” to read about their own demise.
