The city of San Francisco celebrated the Golden State Warriors with “Golden State Warriors Day” on Tuesday, and they handed star player Stephen Curry a key to the city. The event was a nice tribute to the team after its successful season. There was only one problem: mayor Ed Lee made a blunder when he misspoke and called Curry “Steve” instead of “Steph.” “You know what they say: You give Steve Curry an inch, and he might take a Golden State a mile!” Lee said during his speech. “Just 25 years old, he has made it on Sports Illustrated. Cover. The first time a Warriors player has made that cover for his skill, for his talent, since 1980.” Wearing a blue blazer and yellow tie to represent the team’s colors, Lee seemed in tune with the Warriors. Earlier in the rally, he recognized Curry for setting the record for most 3-pointers made in a season. He did butcher the name of rookie Festus Ezeli, but that’s a tough one. Lee got Curry’s name right both before and after the slip-up, so we won’t be too hard on him. At least he wasn’t nearly as bad as this politician when it came to butchering names. The scary thought is he now also has something in common with Metta World Peace. H/T D Wizzle’s World via Deadspin
