Congratulations White Sox

Following on from last year's (regrettable) ending of the Boston Red Sox 80+ years streak of failure, the Chicago White Sox have achieved a similar (not to mention more acceptable to TAE) feat, winning the World Series for the first time since 1917. And they did so in emphatic fashion, taking the series in a clean, 4-0 sweep.

Congratulations to White Sox fans, especially to TAE reader and long suffering White Sox supporter Peter S. And of course, to make White Sox celebrations even more enjoyable, we should note that the run of failure for cross-town rivals Cubs continues into its, gulp, 97th year.

Thanks, Scott!! Still pinching myself and probably will have to for another week or two. BTW, watching last night's WGN post-game coverage, a South Side fan was shown during the celebration prominently displaying a T-shirt that said, simply, "CUBS SUCK!" Ain't life grand...
