This is a compilation of news stories that I have found about the fact that Gerry Sandusky is not Jerry Sandusky. Our Ravens play-by-play guy is getting a ridiculous amount of hate spewed at him on Twitter from folks who are either uniformed, lazy, stupid, or trolls. Some of them have actually apologized when they've realized they are in the wrong, so thanks go to them. Most have not, but I suppose that's how it goes.
I figure if nothing else, a list of news articles from across the country (and one from overseas) is as good a way as any to get the word out. There are over a dozen articles below about how Gerry is not Jerry. If you know of any I haven't listed (that are not just copies of ones listed here that ran across wire services) please let me know in the comments.So anyway, here's the "You've Got the Wrong Sandusky" list ...

Also, for those interested, there's a very nice article written by Gerry called Lessons Learned from an Impossible Situation (written June 25, 2012). It's worth a read.
And again, if you've got any article you'd like me to add, post it in the comments.
