And they've added 1904--a year in which we very well could have won the World Series...had one been played.

Here's another one. I saw this ad for a ticket-scalping agency on the New York Times' website. (It's one of the ones that was bought out by Ticketmasturbator.) Again, see if you can spot the mistakes:
