Wrong city, eh?
Raiders punter A.J. Cole was able to make light of an unfortunate mishap Wednesday after the team arrived in Winnipeg, Manitoba, for the Raiders preseason matchup with the Green Bay Packers.
apologies to the citizens of Winnipeg, Manitoba... just a kid from Atlanta, Florida playing football in Oakland, Nevada with a low geography IQ @Raiders https://t.co/oh0i2tJbNR— AJ Cole III (@AJCole90) August 22, 2019
Cole's sweatshirt had Winnipeg, Alberta on the front. However, the Raiders and Packers are playing in Winnipeg, Manitoba for their Canada game Thursday night.
Twitter went so far as to create a Moment out of it, which included some funny responses from local teams and Cole's teammates.
We can't wait to visit you in Oakland, Nevada 😏— WPG Blue Bombers (@Wpg_BlueBombers) August 22, 2019
Hey, we all make mistakes when it comes to geography. But it's not too hard to double-check that your shirt has the right location before you put it on, although I'm sure A.J.'s teammates will be reminding him constantly during the team's stay in Canada.
