You say Spilotro, he says Soprano

L.J. O'Neale, a deputy district attorney from Clark County, Nev., was talking about a Spilotro court case when he was on the witness stand and made a verbal goof.

O'Neale was talking about a case involving Tony Spilotro in the mid-1980s.

Except he got his mobsters confused.

"In the way of the Soprano . . . that's terrible . . . the Spilotro case," O'Neale said, chiding himself mid-sentence for his error.

O'Neale, who appeared pained by his error, finished his testimony without further confusion.
