When you're a totally biased Sox Fan, there are ever only two seasons in the year: one for winning and one for everything else. So why is WSI's Hal Vickery sending holiday greetings? The Sox will be back... but not quite yet!
Well, wasn't that exciting? NOT! Since Detroit obviously didn't want it, why not let 83-win St. Louis masquerade as baseball's world champion team? WSI's Guy Bacci has nothing against Cinderella, but perhaps MLB has passed out a few too many glass slippers when pigs like this get to wear the crown.
Picking a Winner
The Sox aren't participating in this year's World Series and like other Sox Fans, WSI's Hal Vickery is trying to figure out where his rooting interest should lie. One thing which every Sox Fan can never disagree: always pick a WINNER!
Under the Radar Again
The Sox aren't champions anymore so guess which Chicago team is nearly invisible all over again? WSI's Hal Vickery has heard it all this month, and sadly, it sounds all too familiar. Flying under the radar, however, definitely worked out well for the Sox last time!
The Sox season is over and Chicago is again without a championship ballclub, but WSI's George Bova is all too happy to be a contrarian Chicago sports fan given what the losers in the local sports media are serving up these days. It's a cold winter sharing the city with these numbskulls!
Television celebrity, love interest to Hollywood's most beautiful starlets, Sox Fan, and sock! Senor Sock is back at WSI to offer Sox Fans insights only a sock could offer! Which teams aren't long for this October? The Toast of Argentina knows!
Rooting Interest this October
Who to root for? There are still plenty of ex-Sox playing on teams still alive this October. Magglio or Frank? One of them will be playing in the Fall Classic this month, but WSI's Hal Vickery has little trouble deciding which one deserves his support!
The Sox championship quest for 2006 has officially ended but the woulda, coulda, shouldas started long ago! Everyone knows what's right and wrong with the Sox and what is the "proper" way to deal with their past success and current failure... and several of them are writing WSI's Hal Vickery!
What a Run.
Back in 1918 everyone in Chicago thought they would live to see the next Chicago championship ballclub. 88 years later and we've reached a similar point in Chicago today. WSI's George Bova notes that those who can't appreciate the significance of the 2005 team's accomplishments, or those who spent the past year miserable about the Sox, only reveal themselves as fools. Chicago is proud of the Sox and the living, breathing legacy they've given us!
