WikiMike

If Mikes have a blog, surely they have a Wikipedia entry!

The entry:

Mike may refer to:
abbreviation of
Microphone
abbreviation of
Michael
middle
Linebacker in American Football
Mike (Coronation Street), fictional character in the British soap opera Coronation Street

A linebacker is a Mike? I'll need one of you more sports-saavy Mikes to confirm. I have a feeling this was entered by some smarmy, chuckling kid --name: Mike--who is a linebacker for his grade-school team. I can see him sitting at his computer, typing in his erroneous entry, so pleased with himself. Before this turns into another anti-Wikipedia diatribe, I'd better hedge: OR maybe the linebacker position is also referred to as the "Mike."
