Well the Chicago White Sox won the World Series, sweeping the Astros in the first four games of the seven game series. The games were pretty exciting. Some highlights, Game 3 lasted 14 innings and Game 4 had a final score of White Sox 1, Astros 0! The White Sox haven’t won a World Series title since 1917, so they are experiencing the kind of excitement and relief the Red Sox experienced last year. Next year? Maybe it will finally be the Cubs turn. They haven’t won a World Series since 1908.
Just a funny side note. I’ve only become a dedicated baseball fan in the last couple of years. About two and a half years ago, some guys at work were talking about the Cubs, Red Sox, and White Sox and how they hadn’t won in forever. Well, not understanding the game, the curse, etc., I thought they meant that they hadn’t even won a game in forever! So I was trying to figure out quietly to myself why anyone would be a fan of a team that couldn’t even win a game in 86 years! I was quickly schooled on the intricacies of the game, the teams, the curse, and all of the other great things about baseball that awakened the fan inside me.
