Inquirer gets ahead of itself on World Series

A Philadelphia newspaper has apologized to readers for mistakenly running an ad congratulating the Philadelphia Phillies on winning back-to-back World Series titles.

A day after the Yankees took a commanding 3-1 lead in the World Series, The Philadelphia Inquirer ran an ad from the retail chain Macy's congratulating the Phillies on winning back-to-back championships.

The three-quarter page ad on the back of Monday's front section features a T-shirt emblazoned with the Phillies logo, the Commissioner's Trophy and the phrase "Back To Back World Series Champions."

The Inquirer released an apologetic message to readers saying the paper deeply regrets the error.

Confident fans still anticipating a Phillies win may need to temper their purchasing expectations, however. The ad contains a small disclaimer at the bottom: "Advertised items may not be at your local Macy's."
