Fire and Fire?

Among the many commercials that run every five minutes during ACC basketball games is a flashback to Rodney Monroe, the former shooting guard at NC State. Monroe and his point guard, Chris Corchiani, were known as Fire and Ice. I always thought the nickname was sort of pointless, but it is now revisited in the commercial.

The only problem is that the voice over refers to Rodney Monroe as the Fire in Fire and Ice. Monroe was one of the coolest, quietest great players the ACC has ever seen. He was definitely the Ice in that combo.

Wouldn't you think an ad by a primary ACC sponsor would get that right?
