I know I shouldn't expect anything more from the Freep or Albom than poorly researched articles but it never fails to amaze me that one of the most critically acclaimed sports writers in Detroit and possibly the country is so poorly versed in things that the average sports fan knows.
In today's column Mitch is talking about Tate's nerves of steel in his ascent to awesomeness. He notes (incorrectly) that just last year Tate was carrying his school books down a high school hallway.
Tate was home-schooled.
Maybe I'm so far buried in Mgoblog that I assume things like this are common knowledge, but c'mon, it is Mitch's job to know such things.
At least now we know Mitch's interview with Brian wasn't an act, he really doesn't know anything about mgoblog, which may be more pathetic than lying about it.
