Jay Mariotti finally found a reason to work less and keep his TV gig on ESPN. Mariotti resigned from the Chicago Sun-Times yesterday. According to the Chicago Tribune, Mariotti's competitor:
    Just back from Beijing, where he covered the Olympics, Mariotti said in a phone interview that he decided to quit after it became clear while in China that sports journalism had become "entirely a Web site business.
