Default ESPN does it yet again...

Forgetting the Sox and then quickly deleting the mistake.

There's a story in the Chicago Tribune sports section today about it.

Those clowns never learn do they?

This happens when your outlet cares more about landing its next Lavar Ball interview than getting simple facts correct. The recent layoffs don't exactly help.

This is the third mistake ESPN has made correct?

First was the "Chicago hasn't won a title in baseball in over 100 years"

Second was the "This will be the first World Series game in Chicago since the 40s"

and now this one...

that's brutal!

I've been ESPN free since 2004. Glad I haven't missed much.

They are still mad the Sox beat them so their beloved Red Sox dream of repeating didn't happen...

It's a joke sports service completely committed to the current trend in our country of lowest common denominator TV viewing. AKA, reality tv type entertainment.

The only use I find is ESPNFC. Their soccer service is void of their usual garbage since soccer isn't really that big in the states yet.

Sooner or later, though, I am sure they will ruin it too.

Back in 2006, they had an online poll for every 4-sport major league city asking fans who their favorite local team was. Their Chicago poll omitted the White Sox altogether. They just listed Cubs, Bears, Bulls, and Blackhawks .....and the Sox were reigning World Series champs at the time!

Who could forget this classic call on ESPN from the '05 ALDS?
"Ohhhhh Noooooooo!!!!!!! Everybody's safe! "

Don't forget the image they showed on Sports Center last year during the World Series that compared the number of championships Chicago and Cleveland had won in a 30-year period. They listed the Blackhawks, Bulls, and Bears titles. But, they didn't even list the White Sox.

All they had to say was "The Cubs haven't won a title in over 100 years" and "This will be the first World Series game at Wrigley Field since the 40s" and all of this could have been avoided.
