My mom doesn't know who Alex Rodriguez is.
I just called her and asked if she could identify a bunch of pro athletes. Mom's not much of a sports fan, but she at least recognized the names of Tiger Woods, Shaquille O'Neal, Brett Favre and Vijay Singh (Vijay Singh?).
It gets better. Derek Jeter? Drew Bledsoe? Lance Armstrong?
