Allan Wall`s Blog: I`m 100 Percent Mexican Says Mark Sanchez
In his column, Joe Guzzardi cited an ESPN article about Sanchez that didn`t mention that he speaks Spanish. I`m sure if Sanchez did, ESPN journalist Jorge Arangure would have made a big deal of it. [¡Viva Sanchez! by Jorge Arangure Jr, ESPN Magazine, August 11 2008]
Yet the link in Wall`s blog to the story indicates that in less than two years (most of it spent on the football field) Sanchez has developed a masterful command of Spanish. [Yo Soy Mexicano: Mark Sanchez, El Universal, February 6, 2010]
Something isn`t quite right here. The most likely spin is that Sanchez`s Spanish is limited but that El Universal completely cleaned it up before publishing its story.
Or maybe Sanchez read from crib notes?
Sanchez is either a brilliant linguist or this is yet more dishonesty from the mainstream media.
