giants_champs.jpgThe Giants' web site today had a momentary lapse of reality when it displayed a page declaring them as Super Bowl champions and offering clothing and Internet badges.

Mistakes like this are common. Media and advertisers must prepare for both outcomes of a championship game.

In the best-case scenario, a web page can be pulled quickly, although usually not before someone gets a screengrab of the gaffe.

The worst-case scenario is a mistake makes it into a printed product, as was the case in Miami this summer when the Miami Herald ran an advertisement for Miami Heat NBA championship items the day after the Mavericks beat the Heat in the NBA Finals.

The NFL even reported the story of the Giants' mistake on NFL.com.
