TV station rechristens Winnipeg Jets “Winnipeg Jerts”

As seen on Busted Coverage this morning, a local news intern has allegedly been fired over this unfortunate typo. As to what a Jert even is, I'm unsure. I did a quick Google search and some Urban Dictionary thumbing through, and nothing reprehensible came up. It's just a typo.

Or is it…?

No, never mind. I think it's just part of the latest chant at the MTS Centre. Kudos to Ally for the idea — too good to not run with it. Turns out that this intern just had his finger on the pulse of Winnipeg this whole time.
