"Los Diarios del Gringo"
By Shawn Schweisberger
Editor's Note: Shawn Schweisberger - or "Chon Cheeseburger," as he's called in the Spanish-speaking world - is an intern with Reyes Media Group. He serves as a traveling correspondent for Mundo Deportivo (Sports World), a weekly, hour-long sports radio show hosted by Enrique Morales, El Padrino and Adolfo Cortez on La Gran D (1340-AM) in Kansas City, Kan. To receive college credit for his internship at the East L.A. School of Broadcasting and Car Maintenance, he's required to keep diaries of his assignments. The following is yet another excerpt from his coverage of Super Bowl XLIII, with editor's notes made in cases of clarification and spelling errors, designated as "sic."
Went to Readington [sic] Beach, 'cause Enrique and El Padrino wanted me to help promote the show buy [sic] going to the beach and standing out there in a thong that had the show's name on it. I shouldn't have, 'cause it was about 50 degrees outside and I almost froze my caj---s off. Besides, no one could reed [sic] the station name 'cause it was on the wrong side - or as they say in Spanish, "el lado wrongo."
