No television channel is more synonymous with sports than ESPN.
The network has, of course, been broadcasting a great deal of coverage related to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and the Final Four, which is taking place in Minneapolis this weekend.
In one segment of College Basketball Gameday, a “Twin Cities Fun Facts” graphic was shown on the side of the screen, listing Minnesota’s professional sports teams.
ESPN forgot a few...

Missing from the “fun facts” were the championship-winning Minnesota Lynx and Minnesota Whitecaps... and Minnesota United, whose home opener will be aired on the network next weekend.
The omission began to make its way around Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

THEY EVEN HAVE EMPTY SPACE ON THE GRAPHIC!— Matt Capelle (@mrcapelle) April 7, 2019
I’m surprised @ESPN even knew Minnesota has teams.— Al Czervik (@MistedTwister) April 7, 2019
