What's My Name Again?

Steve Curry? A couple weeks ago Metta World Peace of the Los Angeles Lakers sent out a tweet of how he thought "Steve Curry" is a top ten talent in the NBA. Steph Curry played along and followed up with a tweet in which he ended with "Steve Curry... out!"If that wasn't bad enough STEPH was recently called STEVE by the mayor of San Francisco. Come on the MAYOR called him Steve! If you are going to give the key to the city of someone at least know his name. I found this very hilarious and pathetic.

If that wasn't bad enough, sport fans witnessed another incident of misspellings.  Fans were asked "Which young player would you like to start a franchise with?" Unfortunately for the fans, two of these players don't exist. Not only did they get all of the team logos incorrect but they spelled Bryce and Matt's names wrong. Bryce goes by Bryce Harper and Matt goes by Matt Harvey. Once again I find it a little pathetic that no one caught this before they put it out there for everyone to see.

What I found interesting was that all three of these guys are on the rise up and coming superstars. If anything I would think that someone would be more likely to make a mistake on a player whom know body knows or someone who isn't too good. But to make this type of mistake on player's who's careers are rising, doesn't seem logical and is borderline pathetic.

Bryce Harper is batting .288 with 12 HR and 23 RBI which is pretty remarkable for a player who is 20 years old. Bryce seems to hit a HR whenever one is crucial and is arguable one of the most important players on his team.

Matt Harvey has been a real gem on the New York Mets this year. He has surprised many people with how efficient he has been on the mound. With a 5-0 record and a 1.93 ERA, Matt continues to become more of a household name, especially to Met's fans. Not to mention his 74 strikeouts.

Steph Curry has erupted onto the scene of elite basketball. He was having a great year already during the season posting up huge numbers against multiple teams, especially the Knicks. However, the playoffs were a different story. Steph was able to put up huge scoring numbers throughout the playoffs as well averaging around eight assists. The key and most impressive stat, however, is the fact that he was able to do this night after night and be consistent.

I guess those of us looking to get into the sports world can take this as a learning experience to always double check everything. Whether it be a tweet or a project you are working on, always double check everything before you submit. I know everyone always has told you this throughout middle school to now and most of us never double checked our tests before we handed them in, but do you want to be the next bozo who makes this type of mistake?
