Now that the Jerry with a "J" Sandusky trial has ended, WBAL sportscaster Gerry with a "G" Sandusky thinks the name shame may be almost over for him. He is no relation to the former Penn State coach.
In a MediaBistro FishbowlDC report yesterday, he said, "That name that sounds like mine is attached to a heinous crime. In another month, some other story will be much bigger than this."
It's about time. Our managing editor Max Weiss first blogged about Gerry "not THAT guy" Sandusky's awful name coincidence last November. He's been dealing with the infamy since then.
Gerry recently tweeted, "I really do appreciate those of you who have helped me inform the world of the powerful difference between the letter G and the letter J."
But he's still proud of his surname, he told FishbowlDC: "When I say my name, I think of my mom and my dad and how much I love them."
