A Little R & R

Unless you're my brother or one of my college buddies, I'm guessing you were unable to find today's error, a word that is harboring an errant r. That's OK — I won't hold it against you.

An r? Before the y? Why the -ry? Something has gone awry.
It's Bobby McCray, not McCrary. I should know. You see, McCray played for my beloved Florida Gators. In fact, he was a senior on the team in 2003, which was my first year as a staff writer and copy editor at Gator Bait Magazine. I interviewed and wrote about him often that season, and I'm happy to report that not once did I misspell his name.

Notice? No second r in the accompanying caption ...
or stitched on the back of Bobby's jersey.
