"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 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 "el estadio" to interview players in the Souper [sic] Bowl. Enrique and El Padrino wanted me to get some stuff from the Detroit Lions, so I asked this important-looking hombre: "Where are the Lions?" He said: "Try the zoo." Went to the zoo [Lowry Park Zoo], but the Detroit Lions weren't there. They weren't even in Tampa, 'cause they're not playing in the Souper Bowl 'cause I guess they didn't play good this year.
Talked to some lion keeper, 'cause Enrique and El Padrino wanted something for the radio show, and he said the Cardinals would win.
