Sox, Cubs, Costas, and Wagnerian Opera?

by Sox Fan DVG of the WSI message board

The Cubs and the Red Sox are losers as far as championships go, but their futility is admired across the nation.  The White Sox are completely ignored while sportswriters and others fawn over Cub and Bosox woes.

Why, no less an authority than Bob Costas, the noted baseball philosopher, has stated that the difference between the Cubs and the Red Sox is that the Cubs are farce, the Red Sox are tragedy. Oh, please. Gag me with Bill Buckner's glove.

Let's see. The red Sox have been to 4 WS since World War I, the White Sox one. They went to game seven all four times. They even beat out the White Sox during the Impossible Dream season of 1967, after which the Sox went into a twelve year coma.  And let's not forget the 1919 boys and their treatment of the fans. If the Red Sox are tragedy, what does that make the White Sox? A Wagnerian Opera?

The Cubs are farce, the Red Sox are tragedy, and Bob Costas is a pompous, blow-dried goofball.
