Boston fans, media certifiably sports-crazed

December 15, 2004 BY RON RAPOPORT (rrapoport@suntimes.com) SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST

The thing I like most about writing sports in Chicago is that there is no offseason. Wake up in the morning and stick your head out the window, and you almost can hear the wailing: Cubs! Sox! Bears! Bulls! Irish! And all the rest.

Let me just put it this way: Writer's block is the least of our problems. But I've been in and out of Boston a few times lately and have come away feeling almost lazy. We work hard in this town keeping up with all the craziness, don't get me wrong. But to be a sports fan -- or a member of the media -- in Boston these days is to be something close to insane.

Most Boston fans would agree "Guilty as charged."
