Almost 15 million people are officially unemployed in the U.S., but the person in charge of placing the day-after-big-sporting-event ads for Macy's still has a job.
The Miami Heat won the NBA championship last night, according to Macy's, which placed this ad in the Florida papers today.
Oh, this isn't the first time it's happened. In 2009, the department store congratulated the Phillies on their back-to-back championships...
For the record, Dallas won the NBA championship last night, and the Yankees won the World Series in 2009. And Truman has a better chance of winning the presidency next year than the Timberwolves have of beating the Heat.
So what happens to the souvenir hats and T-shirts for team's that don't win championships? They get sent to other countries.
