White Sox Coverage from another Blog

Lots of folks ’round the Blogosphere are commenting about the South Siders sweep. So far, this is my favorite comment. Here’s a snip…»«TBogg»«:

Dear Chicago

After sweeping the Astros everyone had snacks… 

I’m didn’t really care much one way or the other who won the World Series ((emphasis added by this blogger)although I did get a charge out of watching George H.W. and Barbara Bush witness something even more disappointing than their children), but it was nice to see an old school team win it for the second year in a row as opposed to those upstart spend-a-shitload-of-money-then-collapse teams (Marlins ’03, D’Backs ’01). Like a lot of baseball fans I would have liked to have seen Bagwell and Biggio win one before they retire, but, oh well.

Congratulations Sox!


I sincerely hope you’re not getting your sports news from the Chicago Metroblog, but the White Sox just won the 4th game of the World Series 1-0 over the Astros and therefore won the World Series. (World Series? They play baseball in Japan, don’t they? And all over Latin America? Why aren’t they in the World Series? Oh, because “no challenges have been made by other leagues“? Oh well.)
