It seems hard to believe but five months have passed since our White Sox were crowned champions of Major League Baseball. Now the games will count once again and WSI's Hal Vickery understands just how special this season truly is!
World's Greatest Newspaper?
Perhaps borne of ignorance, a great number of Chicago's mediots swallow whole the half-truths and flat-out lies regarding our Sox and that other team. WSI's Matt Malec finds the situation quite pathetic and sometimes laughable -- mostly because of the pretensions of the self-described World's Greatest Newspaper for being chief perpetrator of the nonsense.
This Old Sox Fan
When a Sox Fans get to be as old as WSI's Hal Vickery, it's no surprise to become sentimental reflecting back on all the years of futility -- especially that now we're World Champions, baby! Take a trip down memory lane, both long-ago and recent, with the most prolific writer in WSI history!
Baseball's Barry Scandal
Local drivel suggests a convicted cheat should be given the homerun title because suspicions about his juicing doesn't constitute proof. This is the mess Major League Baseball has created for itself -- and it is far from over. WSI's Hal Vickery suspects baseball's powers that be wish the problem would just go away. Don't they always?
Back Talk from Ex-Sox
Last month ex-Sox Frank Thomas couldn't keep his mouth shut, and Kenny Williams wigged out. Now Carl Everett is the latest ex-Sox to start chirping. WSI's Guy Bacci notes being a Sox has never been this popular before!
A Championship Spring
A terrific Sox winter now gives way to a terrific Sox spring! Controversies or not, no Sox Fan can mistake the difference between what we're accustomed to and what we're living through now. WSI's George Bova says enjoy every minute of it!
Frank's Pride, Big Hurt!
The media fallout from the Frank and Kenny soap opera appears to be ending, but amongst all the countless goofball theories and platitudes offered by sportsblab mediots this past week, here's one none of them ever thought to articulate. WSI's Hal Vickery is hardly surprised to be the only one sharing it.
