Why don't they publish scores anymore?

Sports sections take a lot less care with their game stories than they used to, on the assumption that by the time they're published everybody already knows how the game came out.

So in the Monday Tribune thrown up on my doorstep, I didn't expect the account of Sunday's NBA playoff game between Miami and Indiana—a game I had to turn off a few minutes before it ended—to heap on the color and detail. But I did suppose that somewhere in the story, or in the headlines accompanying the story, the Tribune would mention the final score.

Is it just me? Back in tenth grade I turned in a report on a junior varsity basketball game that was heavy on the quips but forgot to mention the score. I was thrown off the school paper. That was traumatic, so don't trust my judgment.
