Meghan Torjussen by all accounts has a budding reporting career. However, she had a pretty bad faux pas on Sunday night as she reported that Game 4 between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics finished in a tie. She apparently got the news from her producer, so both parties are at fault.
I just do not understand how both of them could think the game ended in a tie. Name the last basketball game that ended in a tie. I can not understand how Meghan Torjussen would actually say that on air. I know she got bad information, but your thought process should override that news.
Meghan Torjussen is probably not a sports person, so she might not actually know the intricacies of basketball, but come on. There is no way that a basketball game, much less a playoff one, could ever end in a tie. It just makes zero sense. Hopefully she is not involved in sports, otherwise she just looked like a complete fool.
A lot of people make mistakes and are able to overcome them. Meghan Torjussen will probably join that crowd but for now she’s Internet famous. Being Internet famous is almost never a good thing. This case is also not a good way to get known. She will now be known as the girl who reported a playoff basketball game ended in a tie. Not exactly the greatest way in the world to make an impression on people.
