Hilarious hockey mistake goes viral during tonight's NFL pre-season game

How does that even happen?


Well, this is embarrassing.

The Carolina Panthers hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in last night's pre-season NFL matchup. Only problem was, whomever was in charge of placing the logos on DirectTV apparently doesn't know their sports very well.

Multiple Twitter users took screenshots of their app, which showed the Steelers going to battle against...the Florida Panthers. 

I mean, it's not like the Panthers logo has the word "FLORIDA" in bold letters or anything. 

Of course, this isn't the first time that such a mistake has happened. A Canadian news station made the mistake of declaring that the Florida Panthers were playing in the Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos in 2016. Meanwhile, ESPN's Chris Fowler accidentally called the Carolina Hurricanes the Carolina Panthers ahead of the Kraken’s pick from the newest  NHL franchise earlier this summer.

Mistakes happen, but that's just silly!
