Redskins: "We are very sorry that we showed a penis on our website all day yesterday"

Washington Redskins' tight end Chris Cooley recently posted a photo of his playbook on the team's blog. Cooley says he didn't realize that the shot was more explicit than he intended.

The mishap prompted the Redskins site to issue what will surely be remembered as one of the great sports apologies:

"All apologies from the website. We are very sorry that we showed a penis on our website all day yesterday. That was by no means our intention and we did not want to offend anyone. The picture wouldn't have been up for so long, but we were in the middle of winning a big game. Once again, this was a complete accident and we regret not reviewing the post more closely."

Here's the picture, if you're curious.

"....we regret not reviewing the post more closely". I would think they'd regret seeing it at all!

To paraphrase David Niven at the Oscars one year, when a streaker ran out behind him: "What a pity he could only get a laugh by displaying his shortcomings."

I still carry a vivid memory from childhood of being flashed by Dante Pastorini's ass via the live television feed from a post-game locker room. No one, I can assure you, is so casual with photographic equipment in the dressing room of a ballet company. Sooner or later under these circumstances mistakes are going to happen; and with the Internet today, you know they're going to be immortal, too.

I think the dude photographed the playbook in his own lap.

Well, for some reason I didn't look at the picture first. And at the Marriott too!! What the hell was he doing in there?

Mistakes like this, especially the infamous tea kettle incident, are the reason I have a firm rule about never tripping the shutter unless I am wearing pants.

It's amazing the amount of detail a modern digital can capture from the reflection in an eyeball...

(Although, if you read the snopes article about the tea kettle incident, it's not quite what it appears to be...)

I just love the fact that USians call the position in what is supposed to be the most manly of sports a "tight end".

I can't find the picture anymore. Is it still up (pun intended)?

I just love the fact that USians call the position in what is supposed to be the most manly of sports a "tight end".

"And next year, I hope to be a wide receiver ..." - old Robin Williams routine about an All-American tight end from SF State.

Also, it looks like the post was to Cooley's personal blog, not the Potomac Region Indigenous Person's official website.
