At one point hosts of ESPN's "First Take" referred to Milwaukee as a "terrible" city. Well, it looks like ESPN might not even know where the Cream City is. 

During halftime of Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Bucks and Boston Celtics on Friday night, ESPN ran an image of downtown Columbus, Ohio, instead of Milwaukee. Wrong river, wrong US Bank building.

That's right, Columbus, which doesn't even have an NBA team. Do all midwestern cities look alike?

Now, the pressure is on Mayor Cavalier Johnson to formally respond to ESPN, after he sent them gifts in April, extending an olive branch for their Milwaukee diss. 

But it could have been for something worse, at least Chicago is on Lake Michigan.
