That's a neat find. I had fun looking through the slides. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Great pics, but oh boy - the write up!
Riddled with errors.
Don't people use proof readers any more? They should. Spell checkers just don't cut it.
Real-Admiral Albert Calavicci? I think they mean Rear-Admiral.
And 'Ain't that a kick in the butt' was Al's catch phrase, not Sam's.
Sheesh.
Whoever wrote that article should hang their head in shame.
Most of the kids at the school where I work could do better, and a large percentage of them don't have English as their native language.

Who knows, leaper1? Maybe it was deliberate sabotage on the part of Fox against an NBC show?

I caught the Real Admiral part. The other one I missed.

I think "Chucbby Checker" takes the cake though.

And "Stockwell is a martial artist"? Well, 30 years ago...

I had fun reading it.

Like Leaper1 said whoever wrote it needs to brush up on their QL though.

Indeed, LOL! Like oh_boy, I wonder if it was on purpose, though. Even if they don't know much about the show, they can look up the names and the events on the Internet. I mean, a big reasearch is not even necessary. Everything is there. One click, done. So weird that these errors made it even there.
