After all, this was the year that Jay Mariotti quit the Sun-Times. And late last week, the Tribune announced it had fired hack Mike Downey. Mariotti was known for having a big mouth but never going into the locker rooms to face the athletes he ripped on. Downey was brought in from corporate sibling the LA Times when Michael Holley quit a mere two months into his job as a Trib columnist.
All this on top of Mike North leaving WSCR? I mean, I don't listen to sports talk radio because of blowhards like North. But if I did listen to sports talk radio, I STILL wouldn't listen to North.
Chicago, home to the new president and no longer home to three awful sports journalists. Our "most livable city" score surely has shot up.
I don't like all-negative posts, so here's something super great about Chicago sports.
