Majestic Aplgizes for Jersey Errr

Majestic Athletic took the blame for their jersey error, which allowed Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman to wear Washington Nationals jerseys without the "O" in "Nationals":

WASHINGTON -- Majestic Athletic spelled things out quite clearly Tuesday: It was the uniform company's fault that Washington Nationals Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman wore jerseys reading "Natinals" during a game last week.

Dunn and Zimmerman donned the shirts that were missing an "o" for the first three innings of Washington's 3-2 loss to the Florida Marlins on Friday night. They eventually changed into jerseys with the team nickname spelled correctly.

"All of us at Majestic Athletic want to apologize to both the Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball for accidentally omitting the 'o' in two Nationals jerseys," Majestic Athletic president Jim Pisani said in a statement distributed at Nationals Park on Tuesday.

"We take 100 percent responsibility for this event and we regret any embarrassment for the Nationals organization, players and fans," the statement continued.

I should note that the "100 percent responsibility" changed to only 10% responsibility once one of the 0's disappeared. Guess Majestic shouldn't have laid off that vowel guy--but they should hire him back before the Marlins' jersey turns "rosy" and "excessively ornate."
