Was — it's such a simple word. A three-letter verb that is the past tense of be. It'd be pretty hard to misprint was. Or so you'd think.
I don't mean to pile it on, but I found another error in the Nov. 7, 2011, issue of Sports Illustrated.
In one of the questions Dan Patrick posed to Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins in the "Just My Type" department, the word was was split and placed on separate lines.
Talk about a bad break.
