The Miami Herald Wrongfully Congratulating the Miami Heat for winning the Finals
2011 EPIC Fail Of The Year
Don’t confuse this with our “Fail Of The Year”, this category is the “EPIC Fail Of The Year”. The Heat didn’t win the NBA Finals, but that didn’t stop the Miami Herald from printing a Macy’s ad that was congratulating them for doing so and selling ‘Miami are Champions’ merchandise. To Macy’s defense, the Herald had the design ready in case the Heat did win and just never replaced the ad the day after they lost. So it was very stinging to see this ad in the Herald on the morning that Heat fans were mourning the loss against the Mavs.
