WBEZ's Alison Cuddy fills in for Brian Babylon, and she's got her rant pants on about media coverage of the Chicago Bulls. Alison and Molly launch into an extended conversation about Chicago sports teams and the Bulls-Heat tension, and listeners chime in with their two cents. Molly also brings in the recent lawsuit against the NHL for the alleged "wrongful death" of NHL enforcer Derek Boogaard.
"I feel like all Chicago teams are getting this same kind of "grit" coverage right now. I don't follow the Bulls, but what you're saying sounds eerily familiar to what the Bears have been getting for the last few years.... [W]e've been chronically underestimated by the media and every time we do well, it's because we're "gritty" - not talented, gritty. I feel like that's now the Chicago narrative that's easier for the sports commenters to cover, since they don't have to bother really learning about the individual teams."-- Listener Amanda Renee King
