In accordance with 1990s night, the Phillies broadcast showed a graphic of players who played the most games in the 1990s for the 4 major sports. The Eagles player for this distinction is linebacker William Thomas who played with the Eagles from 1991-1999 (140 games as listed on the graphic). Only the picture is clearly Tra Thomas who was drafted in 1998. To be fair, Tra Thomas did (or still does?) call himself Willie at some point, but they still have the wrong picture associated with the player that it is supposed to be (and the linebacker was always WILLIAM [not Willie] Thomas).
Someone from the Phillies just probably hit google images for William Thomas. The 3rd picture that shows up from the search the is Tra Thomas headshot that they used. Can the Phils get anything right? A little fact checking please!
He used an awful lot of words to confirm that the Phillies did, in fact, use a picture of Tra Thomas, who does, in fact, show up as the third picture in a Google image search for “William Thomas Eagles”:
But John missed perhaps the more obvious error: MICKEY MORANDINI IS MIKE FUCKING FONTENOT (!!!).
As you see, the first true headshot for a “Mickey Morandini” Google image search comes up in the second page of results and is a picture of Mike Fontenot, with the caption “Mike Fontenot is Mickey Morandini.” Someone should tell the Phils' graphics guy that wasn’t meant to be taken literally.
Let's go, graphics guy: step it up!
