Sweep Home Chicago
You knew I had to post something about the White Sox sweep in the World Series. This says it all:
Quite a Series. Quite an historic win. Quite an exciting postseason for this Chicagoland native. If only my late father, a lifelong Sox (and Cubs) fan, could have witnessed this championship season. The Black Sox curse is shattered.
As an added treat, we got to beat a team from the Bush homeland, on their home field, in front of little Georgy's parents:
Blue State, Blue City wins big. What a ride.
The Series had everything: a grand slam homer (by Konerko, only the 17th in World Series history), a homer by a benchwarmer (Blum), a 14-inning win by the Sox (the longest game in Series history and tied with Babe Ruth's pitching win with the Boston Red Sox in the 1918 Series for most innings) and a 1-0 nailbiter for the 4th game win. Now, if we can match this White Sox miracle with winning back the Congress in 2006 and the presidency in 2008, we'll know the winds of change have truly turned our way!
How about that catch of that foul ball in the stands by Juan Uribe? I still can't believe the Sox did it. Cheers!

that was a GREAT catch....and Uribe's final charge for that blopper ball and wicked throw to first to end it all! Fantastic baseball really.
I thought Uribe should get the MVP for the game!
