The Louisville Cardinals won the 2013 NCAA basketball championship on Monday with a win over the Michigan Wolverines in the tournament final. While the world was watching, it appears that someone at Amazon wasn’t paying much attention.
Amazon is selling a Detroit Free Press publication to commemorate the Wolverines national title win, but there is one problem — it never happened.
Here is the cover of Michigan’s championship book for the win that never happened:
From the Amazon book description:
This commemorative book on Michigan’s 2013 NCAA men’s basketball championship provides a visual account of the Wolverines’ road to glory. Through unique words and images from Michigan’s largest newspaper, the Detroit Free Press, this celebratory book takes readers from the season’s first games in November and on through the exciting 2012–2013 season, the Big Ten tournament, and the road to the Final Four in Atlanta. Including more than 100 color photographs and featuring stars Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway, Jr., and Glen Robinson III and head coach John Beilein, this keepsake book is an essential part of any fan’s collection.
Yeah, it would be an essential part of any fan’s collection if, you know, they actually won the national championship.
But if you are in to remembering championships that never happened, you can buy the book here.
Slip ups like these can happen, but with Wolverines fans still having a sour taste in their mouths from the game and what they perceived to be officiating in favor of Louisville, I’m sure that this one won’t go over too well.
