Watch any big sporting event and the broadcast likes to show off things behind the scenes. It’s kind of like that dude who has the $225,000 dollar car. Sure – it’s nice, but what good is it if you can’t show it off?

Hopefully, when FOX (who is broadcasting the Super Bowl) decides to put a camera on their technical side tonight, they make sure not to broadcast a Super Bowl Wi-Fi password, which is exactly what CBS did today.

CBS This Morning was doing a profile on the Super Bowl security (ironically) and in the process accidentally captured a screen which featured a WI-FI address and the SSID which could have potentially caused a whole set of problems.

I’m pretty sure they took notice of this and made the necessary changes, but I imagine it was quite a process considering they had to tell employees of the new login information.

Pretty amazing to think that actually got by production as well and made it’s way on air.
