    Great Job to everybody. Congratulations everyone.

    I am not entirely sure that it is a coincidence that is the 88th anniversary of the October 26 th events in the Russian Revolution (Assault on Winter Palace). Certainly associating those two things would be seen as completely bizarre, but Chicago played a role in events like the Haymarket Square and had some figures like Lucy Parsons and Jane Addams who were important in social movements. Butterfly effect ideas are seen as strange, but there might be some bizarre relationship between history and baseball.

    I am not entirely sure that events in baseball are entirely separate from other important historical events.

    4-0 is impressive. One of the best postseasons ever!

    Part of my point mentioning the Russian Revolution is that so so many people have died since 1917. The Cold War happened, for example.

    The Astros did a great job too. I always hate it when the second place team is looked down upon. They did a great job.

    Also congratulations to the sox vendors and other non-players who made money in the series and during the year.

    I thought the game was tomorrow until about 7pm. Maybe this happened too quickly. I was not prepared.

    For me the 1919 curse is lifted. Even though there was some dishonesty in 1919, the Sox overcame it this year.

    Does anybody else think there might be some significance to Ozzie Guillen’s language abilities with Spanish speaking players? I do not know what the significance is.

    Nice seeing the Sox symbol on some buildings this week.

    We have all year until April 2006 to celebrate this victory.

    I thought English footballs 30+ years of hurt was bad! Woodrow Wilson was President and Der Kaiser really was the Kaiser not a nickname for a cyclist. Congratulations big time.

    Was anybody else mildly creeped out by the peanut munching, seeminlgy disembodied heads of Barbara Bush and 41? They sat right behind home plate (slightly to the right, from the perspective of the home viewer).
