And Dewey sank the winning shot

Apr 04, 20061 min
Data Center yesterday offered its customers something of an early-bird special in an e-mail with the subject line, “UCLA Wins.”

Day early, wrong result: Florida stomped UCLA 73-57 last night to win the school’s first NCAA men’s basketball championship.

An Amazon spokesman told Associated Press of the misguided missive, “Clearly, it was a mistake.”

Perhaps UCLA fans can save the message as a consolation prize.
