Look, sometimes typos happen, even in the world of sports , and there's nothing you can do about them.
But some typos are better -- or at least more egregious -- than others, and on Tuesday, the NHL's Nashville Predators made a hilarious transposition in their own name, giving birth to a hilariously unfortunate nickname that will be sure to stick around for years to come.
According to Deadspin , this is part of an email blast sent out by the Predators advertising some sort of season ticket-holder event this weekend:
In addition to misspelling the name of one of the streets Bridgestone Arena is flanked by -- it's Demonbreun, not Demonbruen -- the sender also flubbed the team's name, closing with "Go Perds!"
Not surprisingly, Twitter users weren't especially sympathetic . . .
Everyone lay off me. You try typing with these paws! #Perds

Well played, Perds.
Until the team owned in perfectly, we imagined that somewhere in Nashville, an intern was being scolded by a superior. We wondered if Predators broadcasters Pete Weber and Terry Crisp would soon be replaced with this guy . . .
