I'll bet the writer doesn't know that humorist Dave Barry is also a soccer star.

On a more serious note, this reminds me of when, back in my college days in the mid-80s, one of my fraternity brothers nearly was fired from his job, evicted from his apartment, and whatever else after the school newspaper reported he had been arrested and charged with various crimes. Turns out the genius editors of this regular "feature" simply matched up names between the city police department blotter and the student rolls. It never occurred to them there might be more than one "Bill Johnson" in town.

This underscores the value of having a free press. Were this not the case many people would would falsely go on believing that Shakespeare was still writing TV shows.

From the expression on that statue of Shakespeare the Argentinian doctors don't give the flu shots in the same place as most countries
