It's every newspaper editor's nightmare, a mistake that makes it on to the front-page of your local paper.

The Montreal Gazette incorrectly identified the losing team in last night's Grey Cup game on their front page. Instead of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers the paper had the Lions knocking off the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. It's not "Dewey Defeats Truman" but it's the kind of mistake that could've been spotted if anyone in the newsroom had been watching the game.

But we get it Gazette staffers, you're just bitter that the Alouettes weren't playing in last night's game.
