Well, that was embarrassing.
Local Chicago news station WLS-Ch.7 accidentally broadcasted a graphic that referred to the host city of the 2018 Winter Olympics as P.F. Chang’s instead of Pyeongchang. The mix-up between the names of the South Korean county and the Asian-inspired restaurant chain occurred Saturday and quickly went viral.

Jayme Nicholas, a spokesperson for the ABC affiliate, told the Chicago Tribune the graphic was meant for a separate “satirical piece” created by sports anchor Mark Giangreco that asked viewers to come up with their own Olympic sport. However, Nicholas told the newspaper the graphic accidentally aired during a Saturday story read by anchor Mark Rivera. Nicholas also apologized for the error.

P.F. Chang’s caught the mistake and tweeted about it.
The P.F. Chang?s Games 2018 have officially begun. What event would you dominate? Let?s see what you got.

Hopefully, the news station learned from the mistake.

Red Gerard is the hero we all needed today…
This guy stayed up too late watching Netflix, and in turn overslept on a very important morning (which, we’ve all done, right?!). Only problem was, Gerard was supposed to be competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics for Team USA. Scrambling to get his gear together, he resorted to borrowing his roommate’s coat and peaced out of the house just in time to make it to the competition.

So there Red Gerard was — at the Olympics, wondering where the hell his jacket was, but surely ready to shred the mountain before him. And that he did.

Not only did Gerard win the Gold in the “Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle” category at the ripe age of 17, he also managed to drop the only F-bomb that will probably be heard over the entire 2018 Winter Olympics broadcast.
It’s the most glorious, “Holy f*ck!” ever heard round the world. He’ll go down in history for this…
