SAY IT AIN’T SO, MORNING NEWSPAPER
I thought that perhaps it was just an early season thing. That was my hope. But alas, it appears that the Chicago Tribune is no longer printing full NBA boxscores. As if I needed another reason to scrap my subscription.
So now instead of being able to scour the boxscores–a tradition that goes back to my childhood (Ricky Sobers had 26 last night!)–they drive me to my computer to look up all the action on the interwebs. Bad move, Tribune.
Their reduced box gives readers the score by quarters–ever so important–as well as team totals and top scorer, rebounder and assist man. Yay.
The only place to find more banality than this blog is in the columns of Mike Downey and Rick Morrissey. No more Sam Smith. And now the death of the boxscore. Why should I love thee, Tribune sports section?
