Every now and then, my weekly Sports Illustrated magazines pile up on me.  I’ll then frantically spend extra time on cardio at the gym so I can get caught up.  I’m one of the fortunate ones who can ride a stationary bike and read at the same time.

A few issues ago, I was surprised to see a reference in SI to the Arizona State University Wildcats.

I don’t think it’s the first time a national sports outlet has gotten ASU and the University of Arizona confused.

I was really humored with a recent article in SI about the Arizona Cardinals’ rookie sensation Tyrann Mathieu, who has worked hard to repair his reputation since becoming a pro – a personal PR plan in progress.

The article noted that the NFL safety has been doing all the right things.  Apparently, he’s gone so far as to help coach-up the Arizona Diamondbacks!

“During film study Mathieu occupies a seat in the front row of the D-backs’ meeting room, where he’ll fill his spiral notebook with information…”

Although the Diamondbacks are currently looking for a new hitting coach, it’s doubtful Mathieu is in the running for the job.

Maybe he’ll be the next two-sport star, a la Bo Jackson, Deion Sanders or Brian Jordan.

Or maybe the East Coast media will start paying attention to what’s happening out West.

    Makes you wonder if anyone is editing these before they get printed!
