WDIV Remembers Nelson Mandela With a Picture of Alex Rodriguez

wdiv arod nelson mandela

Nelson Mandela accomplished many impressive things over the course of his life, but playing third base for the New York Yankees was not one of them. This may come as a surprise to Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV, who seem to have confused the two in a graphic that ran yesterday (above).

The graphic of Alex Rodriguez was up for seven seconds before it was quickly replaced with the correct headshot. [h/t New York Daily News]
