Just the other day the honorable Smokin’ Al Koken complained about the Washington Post paying short shrift to the Stanley Cup with its lack of coverage. Considering all of the ink WaPo spilled on the NBA Finals and other national sporting events du jour, it was a fair point.
And then yesterday Dan Steinberg, in a longer post about D.C. United TV ratings being up, shared the WaPo ombudsman’s findings that readers are more interested in the Baltimore Ravens than they are in the Washington Wizards. The Orioles also ranked ahead of the Mystics and United.
Which leads us to two questions, both of which I have opinions on, but I’m curious to hear from the collective. Please place your votes and explain your reasoning in the comments if you’d be so kind.
