Reading through the sports section this morning, I came upon a full page spread devoted to famous chokes with a nice big picture of Guillen, Garcia, and Uribe right in the middle. My initial reaction was, "Oh, hell! There goes my breakfast" Especially when I saw that part of the coverage was an interview with a former Sox player--Ron Santo!

But I was pleasantly surprised. The coverage was upbeat and fair. This writer, Joseph A. Reaves, does a weekly ranking and we've been consistently 1st or 2nd all year. And we're still second. His part of the column about "falls to remember" is-IMO-very well-balanced. And it ends with Go Sox! I plan on e-mailing him to thank him.

I've always like the Republic. That was the paper I would read all the time before class when I went to ASU. Their sports coverage isn't bad at all, especially when they get sick/can't write about the Dbacks.

When i lived there in the 70's we called it the 'arizona repulsive',it was a different time i guess.
I seem to remember a progressive radio station "KDKB' i think it was,that was a favorite of mine.
I haven't been to Phoenix in a long time,but you used to be able to walk across it in one day.I guess thats would not be possible now,as i hear its turned into another L.A.

Yeah, it's getting pretty spread out. I've only been in Chandler for 9 years and it's grown like a weed. We have a ways to go to catch LA, though, and I hope that never happens.

The Republic still rarely gets it right; that's why I was so surprised by this coverage.

People still do.

It's official name used to be the Arizona Republican, back in the days before people demanded newspapers to be politically impartial. Some of the longgggg-time Phoenicians still calls it that, just as my mother in Munster, Ind., still refers to the Munster-based Times of Northwest Indiana as the Hammond Times.
