Viewers of WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh were stunned this morning when anchor Todd McDermott reported that long-time Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward had signed with the Ravens.
A few problems with the "signing": No free-agent signings can take place until next Tuesday at 3 p.m., and the Steelers haven't officially released Ward.
The joke was a spoof by BroCouncil.com that WPXI fell for. The fake post even has Ward in a Ravens uniform.
Not sure who would be stunned more if it turns out to be true next week: Steelers fans or Ravens fans.
