2011 MLS Draft: Commissioner Don Garber Is Unaware Of His Own League's Operations

Okay, this is getting embarrassing. It was bad enough that none of the media had any idea that Omar Salgado was the first overall pick 48 hours ago. It turns out that Major League Soccer's commissioner didn't know that Omar Salgado was the first overall pick as of the start of the draft. Below is one of the most incredible sports-related things I have ever seen on the internet.

I am absolutely beside myself. I cannot believe that this is a real thing that actually happened in real life. Don Garber, the commissioner of MLS and the man who announced that Omar Salgado was the first overall pick, tweeted out that Darlington Nagbe was the first overall pick. This tweet has since been deleted by The Don, but we can has screencaps, so the embarrassment is forever.
