Someone at CBS News made a big mistake.
When the MLB said its goodbyes to New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter with a standing ovation in his final All-Star Game, the CBS News Twitter account sent out this tweet.
Congrats Michael Jeter. http://t.co/Tqg8kWexda—

Naturally, the Internet couldn’t let a mistake that big disappear. The people of Twitter had some fun, and Michael Jeter quickly became a trending topic on the site.
We should note that there was a famous Michael Jeter, who was an actor in “Elmo’s World” and the sitcom “Evening Shade,” among other things. He died in 2003.
