** Detroit and Cleveland were credited with the 1957 and 1960 NFC championships, respectively. Detroit was the 1957 National Football ''League'' champions. There was no National Football ''Conference'' until the 1970 merger of the National and American Football Leagues. Furthermore, Cleveland did not play in the 1960 NFL Championship. Philadelphia defeated Green Bay for the Eagles' final championship to date. The Browns should have been credited with the 1964 NFL championship, their last championship and the last championship for Cleveland in any sport.

* An episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' revolves around Leonard nervously preparing for a football-watching party with Penny's relatives; they're all rabid Nebraska Cornhusker fans, while he doesn't know the first thing about the game. Sheldon, of all people, gives him a crash course on the sport -- he grew up in Texas, and knows everything about the game in spite of the fact that he hates it (and sports in general).

* In the movie ''Anime/YuGiOhTheMoviePyramidOfLight'' [[spoiler:Anubis]] attacks Yugi's Obnoxious Celtic Guardian with Sphinx Telia and destroys it. Obnoxious Celtic Guardian has a special ability that prevents it from being destroyed in battle by a monster with 1900 ATK or more; Sphinx Telia has 2500 ATK. Obnoxious Celtic Guardian's effect is completely ignored.
** Several cards have different effects in the series than they do in real life, resulting in far too many examples of this trope to list here. The above is not an example of this; Obnoxious Celtic Guard was established to have this effect in the show as well.
*** By far the worst example of this is Strings, whose entire strategy revolves around using Revival Jam's effect to respawn infinitely. In the real game Revival Jam's effect is significantly more limited, making the strategy seven kinds of impossible.
** In the actual Yu-Gi-Oh! card game if you normal summon a monster in defense mode, you must place it face-down. In the series the players are not forced to do this and- starting with the GX series- they seem to summon exclusively in face-up defense mode. This was likely done to avoid audience confusion.

* A quick side scene between ThoseTwoGuys in the stands in ''Film/TheWaterboy'': "(Boucher's) the best tackler I've seen since Joe Montana!" "...Joe Montana was a quarterback, you idiot."

{{Film}}s usually avoid this trope, as the writers there will generally have plenty of time to research for the script. Television, however, only gets seven to ten days of shooting.

** Also, in another scene, Elliot says that she'll be a bigger fraud than Barry Bonds; JD replies, "I love it when he wins at that game he plays."
** Also also, in another episode, JD tosses his friend Turk's basketball down a hospital hallway only to have it popped on the security guard's hook hand. JD apologizes to Turk and comforts him with the line "Relax, they come three to a can."
** Also ''also'' also, there's one scene which opens with JD and Turk discussing sports and agreeing that with a certain player, New York could really win the title. Then Turk asks, "which sport are we talking about here?" J.D. thinks it's tennis.

** They also tested if it was possible to knock the cover off the ball, where they took one swing at the ball and declared that it was impossible without super strength, without taking into consideration that using the same ball over and over again might do the trick.

* JonathanCoulton's "Kenesaw Mountain Landis" invokes this intentionally for comic effect, as well as a complete misunderstanding of the historical facts surrounding the Black Sox scandal.
* "Glory Days" by BruceSpringsteen. "Speedball", Bruce? Try '''fast'''ball.
* "Weep Day" by TheyMightBeGiants: ''"pitching for the Oakland Raiders"''. But the lyrics are loaded with contradictions, so it's intentional.
