Was the triple play mentioned in the Trib at all? If I still lived up there I would be livid with the Trib and would be making calls and writing letters to the Editorial staffs. To simply disregard a major league team in the third largest market in the country is beyond the pale. Any Sox fan who spends money on what has turned out to be a rag of a newspaper needs to discontinue their subscription.
There are other sections in the Tribune besides the Sports section. The price of a subscription has escalated to the point that I've considered quitting, but a big part of me feels I have a civic duty to support print journalism as an industry in Chicago.
