Skywriter misspells 'Rangers' in New York City

Skywriter Misspells 'Rangers' In New York City

Imagine looking up at the sky and seeing the letters "R" and "A," and then ... wait, what's that letter? "Fox & Friends" highlighted a skywriter's very embarrassing spelling error.

"I believe he is the worst skywriter. Took to the skies of Manhattan this weekend spelling out the very first few letters of his favorite team's name before running out of space in the sky."

It seems like the people in New York agreed with that statement. Wall Street Journal editor Nathan Becker tweeted out "Worst skywriter ever?"

Another Twitter user treated the whole blunder as a guessing game, writing: "I'd like to solve the puzzle ... Is it rangers?"

Now we don't know anything about the skywriter, but we're gonna guess he or she is probably pretty devastated the Rangers have lost the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Kings. ESPN reports that if the Rangers continue on this losing streak, the Kings will take home the coveted title.

... But back to the skywriter. Maybe we shouldn't be so hard on him or her.

The Christian Science Monitor reports not only did he or she have to write each letter backward, but also "parallel to the ground, which means the pilot can only see the edge of each letter."

So let's give the skywriter a break. We've all had a bad day at the office.

Speaking of mistakes, Madeleine...that would be 'on par', not 'on a par'. I won't even say anything about 'kinda', but correct yourself before you attempt to point out other's errors. Just saying......

On a brighter note, the skywriter was jut hired to join AOL's editorial staff.

Let me guess. Tr-oll in training. You feel po-tent now, powerful? It may be a typing problem, not a spelling problem.

And I think what you wanted to say, bailey.willie, is "must have" gone to a school run by DeBlasio goons. Good going, wonder boy.

Must be a HuffPost editor/contributor at the stick. But up there they have the "no spell checker" excuse.

Looks like this Skywriter needs "spell check". And Obama thinks dismissing College loans is a good idea ??? Think again, Obama. If the education is this poor, I as a taxpayer don't want to get stuck paying for it. I want my money's worth.
