Stupid overblown rhetoric

I've had ESPN SportsCenter on this morning while I do stuff and wait for a call from the people I interviewed with on Friday, and one of the stupid stories is about a Hockey Coach who couldn't read. At the end of this long story about this illiterate hockey coach the reporter says "He now spends several hours a day doing something he never imagined. Reading."

Really?

Because if I were an illiterate I would think that I'd spend a good deal of time imagining reading. I'd tell myself "Some day I'm going to learn how to read." I'd think about all the books I never got a chance to experience.

If the guy never IMAGINED reading then he has worse problems than illiteracy.
