Mike Francesa screwed up the WFAN And Bud Light® Super Bowl XLVII Trivia Contest, NJ contestant's shot at Super Bowl trip

By now everyone knows Mike Francesa accidentally made winning a Super Bowl trip for Chris in New Haven easier than it might have been (rendering the winning moment useless for sponsors SPORTS RADIO 66 WFAN AND BUD LIGHT®). But what happens to 'Trip from Brielle, NJ'?

Question #2 for Trip (Friday, the very next day) was:

Who was the only player to have double digit receptions in 2 different Super Bowl games? Clarified by Francesa as Double digit receptions in two different Super Bowl games.

Trip's answer? Jerry Rice. Francesa's reply? Ah, sorry.

Jerry Rice had 11 receptions in 1988's Super Bowl XXIII and 10 receptions six years later in SB XXIX. Deion Branch also had double digit receptions in 2 different Super Bowl games to further fubar the question.

Trip called back up to inform Francesa of the stats above. Francesa's reply? "No, the question was without scoring a touchdown I believe but that's OK. I'm pretty sure that was without scoring a touchdown."

Yeah, no. It's not OK. That was not the question. You'd think after Thursday's fiasco that the entire production staff would be on full alert for a napping Mikey. They were not. Possibly explains why Francesa needed a police escort to get to his flight out of LaGuardia to New Orleans today. (Something the police should be explaining tomorrow.)

The official rules state:

Francesa (or the substitute host(s) if Francesa is unavailable) is the final judge of whether or not an answer is correct.

But, also:

If for any reason this Contest cannot be executed as planned, including, but not limited to, as a result of infection by computer virus, tempering [sic], unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of the Station that corrupt to affect the security, administration, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Contest, or if the Contest is compromised or becomes technically corrupted in any way, electronically or otherwise, the Station reserves the right to cancel, terminate, suspend, or modify the Contest.

Let's go CBS -- modify the Contest. Because the flavor of #13 is not meant to cover up another Francesa screw up because he's watching golf.

And just a 5 short years ago...Mike & the Mad Dog were ripping Boomer & Carton over a contest error.

UPDATE - Mike says the escort story is fake.

    Branch scored a TD in 38, so that would've been wrong too if that's how the question read. That said, it's probably the production staff that came up with these questions so it's not really on Mike. I seriously doubt he writes the questions himself.

  2. If Mike had the question from his production staff as he read it aloud then why did he add the 'without scoring a TD' later? Regardless of who screwed up, someone did. And then there was a cover-up. For that they must pay.

    As must whatever police department gave this bozo an escort. Great use of money that could have been used elsewhere. Like Sandy relief.

    But even if he had read it correctly (i.e., if the question was written "without scoring a TD", and if he had said that), it STILL would have been wrong because both Rice and Branch scored TDs. So whoever created the question screwed up either way regardless if Mike read it right or not. Most likely he did, but in trying to recall one question out of hundreds he got it mixed up with a different one that specified "without scoring a TD."
