Can You Spot the Error?

The Puzzler

RAY: Sentence number two has the mistake.

I'll read it again.

"While the shuttle and the international space station were engaged in their docking operation the two crafts -"

TOM: Ah ha! It should be, "craft."

RAY: Exactly right. There's no "S" on the end of "craft" unless you're at, say, an Arts and Crafts show. So, who's our winner?

TOM: The winner this week is Marita Ray from Suffolk, Virginia. And for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Marita is going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at with which she can get a Car Talk long-sleeve football-style jersey. It's perfect for the demanding task of lying on the couch, eating junk food and watching football games. You need a special jersey to do that, you know.

RAY: And this is just the jersey for it!
