9 Most Frustratingly Misspelled Names in Sports

Let us be clear: When we speak of the misspelled names in sports, we’re speaking of names that aren’t spelled correctly to begin with, which means those writing them then misspell them. So these names just aren’t spelled correctly by anyone. And it’s terrible. For a sportswriter, or even as someone who comments a lot on sports sites or message boards, you have to write a lot of athletes’ names. No surprise there. While the nuance or novelty of a misplaced letter or alternate spelling may seem like a fun play on a name when it’s on a player’s jersey, it can make life a living hell that can’t end soon enough when you’re writing 500 words on that athlete in question. If the entries on this list had any other career, they wouldn’t affect me one bit. But being a pro athlete isn’t special enough. NOOOOOOOO. You have to have a cute unique name. F*ck you, entries #9-#1. You can all go to hell until you fix your names.

Here are the nine craziest misspelled names in sports.
