ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The event program for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Minnesota gained a bit attention on social media for all the wrong reasons after St. Paul's mayor noticed it features a photo of the other Twin City.
The program, which includes a welcome letter from St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, features a photo of the Stone Arch Bridge — a landmark in neighboring Minneapolis.
The mayor, who is used to the perception that St. Paul is the lesser of the Twin Cities, took it in stride. He tweeted a photo of the mix-up on Friday, writing, "Our plans to take over @cityminneapolis have been compromised."
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1ZJkqt6 ) reports that U.S. Figure Skating spokeswoman Renee Felton says the mistake was an "honest and unfortunate one" that meant no disrespect to St. Paul.
