Thomas Morstead Gets No Respect

New, comments

Five seasons, a Pro Bowl selection, and a Super Bowl win still doesn't earn you the right to have your name spelled correctly.

The New Orleans Saints held their annual Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Tournament yesterday at Chateau Golf & Country Club. This is an official team event put on by the organization where players, coaches, and executives get together for some fun on the links.

So you'd think they'd know how to correctly spell the names of all the Saints players participating in the event, especially the team's current Pro Bowl punter who has been with the team for five years! Not so.

Whoever was in charge of labeling the golf carts before the tournament spelled Thomas Morstead's name incorrectly. And apparently this wasn't the first time it's happened.

Thanks to the power of social media, however, the spelling mistake was quickly rectified on site and all was right in the world once again.

Punters are people, too.
