FAIL in today’s Red Eye

we lost to Phoenix, dammit! losing to Colorado is for Monday’s paper not going to happen! c’mon, I expect better from a mediocre free paper that devotes maybe a tweet’s worth of space to the Hawks every week.

oh, and same issue, the “five on five” (non-Chicagoans: where 5 people answer 5 sports questions with jokey answers). look, I appreciate an “Americans don’t watch hockey LOL” joke as much as anyone, but “How big is Jonathan Toews’ return to the ice?” answered with “It’s huge for the two people that actually watch the sport of hockey” might work better if it was referencing a city that HASN’T sold out (I think…) every home game for weeks? months?
