Well, things were going pretty well until the end of May. I think everyone will agree that ignoring the "other team" is pretty much impossible during the crosstown. To make matters worse, I had to give up my DVR as I moved so I had to watch live news for a couple of weeks. Immediately, I started noticing who was getting reported first in newscasts, and how the media made the "dramatic" 2nd game played at Weeghman Park out to be the equivalent of winning a series.
I'm starting to think about organizing a protest: outside of every Chicago news studio, wear a Sox hat and a shirt that says "I am a fan". I expect that would be ignored, but what else can we do for recognition in a town where things are so biased in favor of someone else.
Now that I have a DVR again, things are getting better, but it's harder to ignore the other team. I need to get back on the wagon. The good news is that I now have CSN Chicago again so I can catch every Sox game.
