    Muted homer-media reactions to sports losses

    It'll be interesting to read some of the local articles today following the Villanova-Michigan blowout. Naturally the same writers who were beating the war drums all week leading up to the contest will now have to write some sort of apologist - well, it was a great season and we never expected to get this far and the players and coaches should be proud blah blah blah... type article. Serves 'em right.

    So what were the Boston Globe and the local teevee network affiliates saying after the Pats lost the Superbowl? Or last year when Houston beat the Dodgers in the World Series - what were the LA media markets saying? Any sour grapes reporting?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I'm from Buffalo; I didn't know there was any other way to report sports.
