As I am sure anyone who reads here often knows, I’m a sports junkie just as much as I am a political junkie.

Well tonight, as I watched SportsCenter on ESPN, those worlds came together in a way I found quite funny.

Pennsylvania Arlen Specter, a “Republican” who is often cited as one of the most liberal GOP Senators, has been digging into the New England Patriots’ alleged cheating via taping their opponents signals to gain an advantage.

Well during a long portion of a segment I watched on SportsCenter, they referred to Spector as “Arlen Spector, D-PA”.

Based on his record, I think a lot of Republicans would appreciate the irony of that mistake by ESPN.

I know I got a nice chuckle out of it.
