Let’s tie a few of ‘em up, shall we? Starting with an item that caught my attention recently in the Pitch. Basically, the Pitch noticed in an outtake scene from Sarah Palin‘s daughter Bristol‘s reality show that she was wearing a Missouri sweatshirt.
Did somebody at the Pitch yell, Stop the presses when they saw that pic?
“Why is Bristol Palin wearing a Mizzou sweatshirt?” shouted the Pitch headline. However, not only did the question go unanswered, there’s no evidence any attempt was made to get to answer the question.
The Pitch just ran with an obscure, fuzzy pic and five sentences of light Bristol banter.
Why was Palin wearing a Mizzou sweatshirt? I wondered.
I got an answer.
There are no records matching that name at the University of Missouri.

Hey, it’s far from definitive, but I’ll take it. The answer being that apparently Bristol neither went to MU or attends now.
My hunch: some staffer on Palin’s failed reality show got her to don the MU duds as a lark. Or maybe she’s a huge SEC fan and wanted to welcome Missouri on board.
