Perhaps some of you got the same e-mail I did recently from GoPack.com about their latest Rivers/Holt auction item.
Nevermind that “Rivers to Holt” seems a bit silly to me considering Philip and Torry never played together. But is it too much to ask for the official athletics website to correctly spell the name of our mascot?
“Two of the most important modern day players to ever come from NC State to the NFL…. TORRY HOLT and PHILIP RIVERS. This custom matted and framed piece is a one of kind original from LegendsAutographs.com and features an autographed 8×10 of Torry Holt in his Wolf Pack days and an autographed 8×10 of Philip Rivers in his Wolf Pack days! This is a dream piece to have seen Rivers throwing to Holt, it would have been one of the most incredible combinations in the history of the NCAA but it surely is a Wolf Pack Fantasy combination! This piece comes with Dual “GAI” GLOBAL AUTHENTICATION Certificates of Authenticity for each of the autographs and is direct from LegendsAutographs.com your number one source for Wolf Pack Autographs and Memorabilia. This piece was custom done for GoPack.com so bid high and bid often and support the Pack!”
Now granted this description more than likely came from LegendsAutographs.com (who also has autographed shoes from “Cammeron Bannerman” and “Illian Etimov”) but does anybody at GoPack.com proofread these sort of things? And isn’t the “Wolf Pack” the mascot for the University of Nevada?
In the big scheme of things this really isn’t a big deal but it’s one of those pet peeve sort of things that looks sloppy and unprofessional and doesn’t do much to improve my already low opinion of GoPack.com.
For related reading material you will enjoy a few of the following from our archive:
But…who is GoPack.com, anyway? Surely it would be asking way too much of them to get the headline accurate in an article about NC State football? Especially since the big story of today’s and the crux of most conversations about the game revolve around the performance of both quarterbacks!! Who would need/want accuracy about that?
