A Championship for the Ages!
The significance of this Sox championship will not be lost on Sox Fans or Chicago's fans who care about winning. But as WSI's George Bova notes, the significance also won't be lost on baseball's insiders who have seen the future of the game and have found it in what the 2005 Chicago White Sox already are! After 88 Years and Waiting, WE WON!!!
Finally Our Turn!
Is WSI's Hal Vickery at a loss for words? Say it ain't so! After decades of religiously following the Chicago White Sox, it's hard to pick out just those things that are absolutely the most noteworthy. Chicago's baseball champions almost leave our guy speechless... ALMOST!
Champion rings for the South Side!
For Chicago's baseball fans who live and die for winning baseball, this month of October 2005 has been the greatest ever! North Side, South Side and everywhere in between, too, WSI's Guy Bacci explains what makes this such an extraordinary time for totally biased Sox Fans from coast to coast!
October 23... Stunning Victory
A game so good, the 18th grand slam in World Series history is only the 2nd most important homer hit; Sox and Astros battle back and forth before Houston's 2-run double in 9th is bested by walk-off shot by Scott Podsednik.
A Video Tribute: Chicago's Baseball Champions!

Memo to Fox Sports!
It's the national spotlight that shines down on Chicago and the Sox, but confusion lingers over exactly what makes Sox Fans unique! Ever in search of another story angle, Fox Sports seems hell bent to sell America a story about the Curse of Shoeless Joe -- going so far as inventing the curse from whole cloth! Along with every other Sox Fan, WSI's Hal Vickery is ticked and won't let such silliness stand! We're not cursed and never claimed to be. Deal with it, Fox!
A World Series for Chicago
The national media has suddenly discovered what a passionate bunch Chicago's Sox Fans truly are. What they don't realize is just how passionate Sox Fans have been even when everyone around us was focused on everything but winning baseball. 46 years of baseball futility in Chicago is over and, as WSI's George Bova notes, it is the city's Sox Fans alone who carry the torch forward 88 years in quest of the world championship we live and die for!
Is is everything we Sox Fans have ever dreamed about? Hell yeah! The 2005 Sox top off a near-perfect ride in the regular season with an even better post-season playoff run. Now WSI's Guy Bacci joins the legions of totally biased Sox Fans looking forward to even better things to come!
New heights of silliness surrounds dropped third strikes while allegedly irrefutable video evidence has the media in a tizzy, but not WSI's Hal Vickery! The 2005 Sox have overcoming the oddsmakers odds all the way back to last spring. Now they're the South Side's favorite underdogs!
The Reverse of Cursed!
While the national media prattles on about silly curses no Sox Fan has ever heard of and certainly doesn't believe, the 2005 White Sox prove over and over again what makes them special and anything but cursed! WSI's Mary Swistara is one more totally biased Sox Fan who knows the South Side's championship will be the sweetest ever!
Unasked questions at ESPN?
Does ESPN suffer from an east coast bias? Though he clearly resides in his own glass house, the Cubune's Ed Sherman bravely casts the first stone! WSI's Mark Liptak has a few more questions left unanswered.
A Whole New Ballgame!
Boston is taillights and the ALCS promises to be even tougher, but the 2005 Sox show the mettle to battle through most anything! WSI's Hal Vickery notes what makes this October so very different for all the totally biased Sox Fans watching this October's action unfold.
The Great Week!
Is the best yet to come? You betcha! WSI's Guy Bacci wasn't alive the last time the Sox won a post-season playoff series and bets nobody else reading this on the world wide web was alive either! The Sox advance and the ride has been great. Better still there is more to come!
Wilbur Wood speaks!
Three-time all star and four-time 20 game winner, knuckleballer Wilbur Wood was the kind of ballplayer every Sox Fan could relate to -- underestimated only by the foolish, and definitely a big-game talent! Now he shares his thoughts about his twelve seasons on the South Side in this EXCLUSIVE interview from WSI and Mark Liptak!
It's October and the Sox are bearing down on the ultimate goal of their six-month quest for championship glory! WSI's Hal Vickery recounts the week that was and the week ahead we Sox Fans have been anticipating going all the way back to the Tucson desert last March!
The wait is over!
WSI's Guy Bacci was in Seattle that fateful day five years ago when the Sox couldn't scratch out a lousy clutch hit to win a game! But now the five year wait is over and the '05 Sox look to go long in the post-season and reach the penultimate paydirt! Go Go Sox! Chicago's Sox Fans -- and Seattle's, too -- are proud of you!
Now that the Cleveland Indians' ship is completely sunk, our beloved Palehose face the task of taking on the defending champion Red Sox in the first "battle of the Soxes" in the history of MLB postseason.
