TV STATION’S TICKER INCLUDES A CONGRATS FOR HAYWOOD JABLOWME’S GOOD RACE
Unfortunately, Mike Litoris got no love for his fourth-place finish.
According to Real Radio 104.1, Philadelphia’s NBC 10 aired live coverage of the 37th annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run Sunday morning, and an unexpected fictional participant received a heartfelt congratulations via Twitter that somehow made it past the station’s censors:
The tweet came from an account belonging to @weingarten1spg, who usually just tweets out American Express deals. But now, it appears as though he or she will be known as the prankster behind this gem:

Billed as “the nation’s largest 10-mile road race,” the Broad Street Run is an annual event that benefits the American Cancer Society. More than 40,000 people run the race that begins at the Central High School Athletic Field at Broad Street and Somerville Avenue and ends inside the Philadelphia Navy Yard at the end of Broad Street in South Philadelphia.
And with that many people running, you have to think somewhere in there some poor bastard with the unfortunate name of Jack Kanoff didn’t think that tweet was very amusing.
