Cogdell-Unrein won the bronze (her second medal, and third time appearing in the Games) in women's trap shooting down in Rio on Sunday, and the Tribune commemorated the event with this absurd tweet (below):
Oh, yeah, that's the thing: in addition to kicking ass at her sport, Cogdell-Unrein happens to be married to Chicago Bears football lineman Mitchell Unrein.
So what's the Tribune's take? Well, why not lead with her husband, right?!
Obviously, Twitter users were not shy about calling out the newspaper for its ridiculous angle on Cogdell-Unrein's achievement, and for pretty much an entire day, the Tribune took it on the chin from angry tweeters (below):
@chicagotribune Her name is Corey Cogdell. Who her husband is doesn't matter. SAY HER NAME. Go on, TWEET HER NAME. Redo that tweet.

@chicagotribune Shouldn't you use her name? She is an Olympic athlete or does it not count if she is married?

@chicagotribune If winning her own Olympic medal doesn't get a woman her own headline, what will?!

According to reports out Sunday morning, Angelina Jolie's political ambitions with the United Nations may have caused a rift between her and Brad Pitt, at least based on a source "close to the couple."
TMZ is reporting that Jolie's dream had been to become a top official with the UN -- which makes sense, considering all the charity work and traveling to developing nations that she does -- but that didn't fly at home with Brad.
