I don't know if that was meant to be in teal. I've never heard of Bode Miller. I've heard of the White Sox (my top choice). I've heard of steroids. I've heard of Lance Armstrong and of Hurricane Katrina. The rest of the list might as well be in Latin.

Bode Miller may be a Boston guy

Hard to believe the Boston Globe would not make mention of the Patriots' Super Bowl win in January. In this age of salary cap and free agency induced parity, it's very surprising to see a team not just be consistently good, but consistently championship-caliber. I know it's cool to be down on the Pats (until recently), but they've had to deal with injuries this year.

I would say:
(1) White Sox
(2) Lance Armstrong
(3) NHL cancelling a season
(4) Patriots' 3rd Super Bowl in 4 years
(5) USC's run
(5a) USC-ND... Greatest college football game ever?
(6) T.O. whining
(7) Hurricane Katrina
(8) Roger Federer

I don't have a problem with steriods being #1 as that affects every team and since hockey still matters in New England the NHL being #2. Lance Armstrong? :?:

I don't have a problem with Lance Armstrong. Maybe in Chicago he wasn't big news but nationally he was huge. What I didn't like was the Globe referring to our team as "the other team from Chicago." :angry::angry:

There is a difference between the biggest stories of the year and your favorite stories of the year. Some people around here, though, don't seem to be able to distinguish between their least favorite Sox player of all time and the worst player in the team's history. You don't have to like a story to consider it the biggest of the year. The people of Norway (save for a Quisling or two) didn't like it when the Nazis waded ashore, but it was certainly the country's top story of 1940.

Not knowing what sport Terrell Owens plays, I wouldn't vote for his story, whatever it was, as being among the year's biggest stories. I have heard of Lance Armstrong, and I know that was a huge story around the world. Even people who don't follow his sport were aware of it.

The White Sox winning would have to be one of the year's top stories, if only because it was so unexpected.

From the same story:
WORST TV TRADE: The NHL is kicked off of ESPN and lands on OLN


But it doesn't say for whom the trade is so bad, OLN, ESPN, or the NHL!

Pretty much the same in San Antonio. As was mentioned earlier the Sox were #1 nationally and in San Antonio the Sox were #3.
