I was a bit upset that the latest body found just blocks from "safest neighborhoood....Wrigleyville", the body police are Now ruling a homicide,
WASNT in the sports sections, nor mentioned in the context of the Neighborhood it actually happened in. Nahhhhhhhhh, Mariotti and the rest of the Chicago CubLoving Media would rather HIDE the fact and talk about all
of the cubfans that ran on the field at comiskey recently. Also, Yellow Journalist/cub fan Mike Kiley today PLANTS the idea that the umpires were the reason for the cubs latest loss ............

Cubune:
4 cub stories
4 sox stories
Cub-Times:
4 cub stories
3 sox stories

Standings since Spring Training ..................though the sox have been on a 3 day run .................
CUBS 1019
SOX 721

I was a bit upset that the latest body found just blocks from "safest neighborhoood....Wrigleyville", the body police are Now ruling a homicide, WASNT in the sports sectionsNow that the NBC News has uncovered additional cub-related connections (http://www.nbc5.com/news/3479224/detail.html?z=dp&dpswid=2265994&dppid=65192) to the victim, I expect to see it as the cover story on chicagosports.com.

[T]he victim operated a number of sports memorabilia kiosks in the Wrigleyville neighborhood and had done so for a number of years. His death comes on the heels of several unsolved murders in the Lakeview area. . . .

Crowley started selling merchandise outside of the ballpark when he was a little boy. . . . Employees of Crowley's [sic] working at the corner of Addison Street and Waveland Avenue during Wednesday's Cubs game were too distraught to speak to NBC5, Martinez said.
The Trib was kind enough to report about the danger to cub fans presented by oncoming trains (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-040701ctaaccident,1,1899475.story?coll=chi-news-hed), but it didn't make the sports section.

That guy getting hit by the train would have been a pretty messed up thing to witness.:(:

I always hate those weekday afternoon Cubs games since it makes commuting home on trains such a chore. I luckily don't have to deal with the Red Line any further north than Belmont but at least three times a summer I will be on a train that gets stopped because some meatheads are on the tracks up ahead.

But that stuff happens outside the field so cannot be considered Cub related.
