“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 an excerpt from his coverage of Super Bowl XLIII, with editor’s notes made in cases of clarification and spelling errors, designated as “sic.”
Finally got two [sic] Tampa. Took the Reyes Media-mobile. It took me too [sic] weaks [sic] to get hear [sic]. Lots of hombres yelled at me when they past [sic] me, stuff like: “Get that tricycle the hell off the freeway!” I ignored them. I told myself: “Hey, I’m gonna cover the Souper [sic] Bowl and your naught [sic, sic].”
