If you hadn't read the post below, or you haven't been paying any attention, the White Sox took the World Series!

To say I'm happy is a serious understatement... I've been listening to the Sox since '81, and while they've appeared to be on the right path a few times, the road ended up leading to nothing. It feels damn good!

But while I'm feeling good, I also feel a bit bad. Houston played well, just not good enough. As Jerry Reinsdorf said after the game, things could have been the other way around, with Houston winning all games. I've always liked two of their players, and I feel bad that Biggio and Bagwell didn't get to win a game in the Series. Yeah, they made it there, but...

I'd have given more links, but I've got some celebrating to do!!

I figured they'd win it, but I thought it would take 5-6 games. Would've been nicer to take 6 so they could win it at home...

"Houston played well"

Uh... what game were YOU watching.

I watched the last inning last night, and they were tossing out stats like... 19 men stranded since they got their last run - 19 innings ago.

Anyway, I'll glad Chicago's drought is over.

Actually, Harv, it was the whole series that I watched... if you were to believe all of the stats that Blimp McLarder and Joe Buck kept tossing out, the Sox were just as bad, as they stranded an entire village, also.

The key thing was that the Sox made things happen when they really needed to... and I think they paid off Morgan Ensberg, too. :)
