On a sports day that was "slow" for the Sox and that other
team 8 miles north, The Sox STILL find themselves on the short
end of the straw. The other team manages to Still get a BackPage on the Cub-Times (a record 6 of the last 8 days)
a FrontPage pic on the Cubune, and Somehow STILL pad their
Lead on the SOX by 2 more stories. Unbelievable.

Chicago Cubune:
3 cub stories
2 sox stories

Chicago Cub-Times:
2 cub stories (including another piece of Cubpoganda in which the reader is "Kiley-ed" matter-of-factly, in that since the flubs were on the brink of a ws appearance, and its no wonder Wood signed)
1 sox story

Media Laughable standings as of 2/28/04

CUBS 116
SOX 39

We have no right to complain.

The team isn't making any news. It's just not interesting...

Throughout a majority of the 1990's, neither did the Cubs.
But that didnt stop the Media from giving them extra coverage.
