* GretzkyHasTheBall: An episode where a #1 baseball prospect is expected to be drafted by Kansas City is treated like he's moving to Kansas City. Even #1 high school prospects (like Bryce Harper, who is a potential "once in a generation" like player), take several years in the minors in baseball, typically nowhere geographically near the parent club before making it to the majors, and even that is not a given. Football and Basketball will see jumps from amateur to the highest level all the time, but rarely in baseball. It's the fact that this is treated as standard procedure and not rare and special [[note]]It's rare and special enough for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_baseball_players_who_went_directly_to_Major_League_Baseball it's own page]] at TheOtherWiki.[[/note]] a GHTB situation.

** Averted when Hutch shows up again later. It's explicitly stated that he's currently playing in the minors and that if he does well there, he'll get called up to The Bigs (the major league). It may have been that KC was intended to represent the minor league team rather than the major league one or that sometime off screen he was traded.

* ActorAllusion: Paul Blackthorne plays a magician. But not [[Series/TheDresdenFiles a wizard]]. He even performs Blackstone's floating lightbulb trick; Harry Dresden's full name is "Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden".

* AluminumChristmasTrees - Coach Gennero's appearance on ESPN is played like he's been exiled from coaching. In reality, plenty of coaches who have been fired or quit - in every sport - take up broadcasting for at least a year or two.
* TearJerker: TK's meltdown in "Goal Line", claiming that he's alone and he'll always be alone. Dani sits with him in the ruin of his penthouse and writes down her seat number for the playoff game, so he knows where she'll be.
* VindicatedByCable
