The Atlanta Falcons are not very good at geography

The Atlanta Falcons are not very good at geography

Once a year for the last few years an NFL team has been coming to play in London. This year is the Atlanta Hawks’ turn, but they have a small problem. They don’t know where London is.

As you can see, that plane isn’t heading to London. It isn’t even heading to the UK. The Atlanta Falcons seem to be off to Spain.

Another thing. The graphic says they’ll be taking three planes to London, but in reality they’re taking two planes to London and one plane home.

Also, why does the UK look like that? All these questions and no answers. It seems they must’ve noticed what’s wrong with it though, as the correct version appears on their website. Well done to Matt Jones for catching it before it disappeared forever.
