Its that dreaded Y I tell you. According to a study done by Wall Street Journal sports blog, The Count, Dwyane Wade has the most commonly misspelled name in American sports. The study use about 32,000 sources to determine what name gave writers and editors the most issues.
You’ve done and I’ve done it. We’ve at one point or another spelled Dwyane’s name as “Dwayne”. We just have. And apparently so have tons of other journalists and bloggers. Me personally, it only took about 25 times of butchering his name before I had its spelling programmed into my habits.
