Bad day to mis-label the Rose Bowl on your map


The Los Angeles News Group has a newspaper in Pasadena (the Star-News) and another elsewhere in the San Gabriel Valley (the Tribune), and likes to be thought of as on the home team when it comes to the Rose Parade and the big New Year's football game. So it must sting — a lot — that LANG's printed guide to the parade and other activities, available to thousands of fans and potential newspaper readers around Pasadena tonight and again tomorrow, misidentifies the Rose Bowl as the LA Coliseum. Ouch. I hear they are getting some email.
