Chicago White Sox respond to 'Wheel of Fortune' snub


Published in Weird News

(UPI) The Chicago White Sox called out game show Wheel of Fortune for snubbing the team in a puzzle based on the city's sports teams.

The popular game show aired a Chicago-themed episode Tuesday evening and one puzzle featured the names of multiple Chicago pro sports teams: Cubs, Blackhawks, Bulls and Bears.

A Wheel of Fortune spokesman explained the omission was an issue of formatting.

"Over the years we have included the Chicago White Sox in many of our puzzles, but in our crossword puzzle format, we use only single word, interlocking answers," the spokesman told the Chicago Tribune.


The White Sox clapped back at the snub, however, with a photoshopped picture working the team's name into the puzzle.

"Here we fixed it, @WheelofFortune," the team tweeted.
