    Latest story from ESPN.com news services on Minnesota-Chicago NFL game going to TCF Bank Stadium on campus of University of Minnesota quotes Indianapolis Colts owner......Robert Irsay. WTF? ESPN have anyone who can competently edit?

    Here's the graf in question lifted from ESPN.com's home page:

    Colts owner Robert Irsay said on Twitter that Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis was available if needed. But NFL executive vice president Eric Grubman said that "100 percent of our focus is on getting this game played at the University of Minnesota."

    Maybe he'll trade for Eric Dickerson.

    Residents of Baltimore will be relieved to know Earl Weaver is still alive and Robert Irsay is still dead.

    The living Irsay is the one who traded two first-round picks for Fredd Young.

    AP ID'd it as Robert Irsay today, so it's possible that ESPN used that story.

    I put the story on our website and completely whiffed on it, too. One of our commenters chimed in:

    "If Bob Irsay hosts the game, they'll have to play it at the Marion County graveyard."

    That's direct from the AP story. Blame AP, give ESPN an assist for being stupid.
