Essentially, it's saying that baseball competition is the No. 3 story because two teams that hadn't won in more than eight decades won championships in successive years. (Steroids, which everyone talked about, but only in relation to baseball, was farther back.) I would have put it higher. No question Lance Armstrong was No. 1, but I wasn't even aware the Patriots had won the Super Bowl. I guess they felt the need to put football ahead of baseball.

They really were only referring to our WS in that moment, so no biggie. It IS a big deal that they referred to us as Chicago's "other" team. That's what bugged me out of this.

Yep, a complete lack of a historical perspective of Chicago baseball.

All these lists make my mind want to explode. Why does everyone feel they need to compile lists and make predictions these days? Not one of them matter.

Easy way for writers to make a buck. The hoi polloi gobbles them up.

I don't know... even I thought it was amazing to see the Red Sox and White Sox end their droughts in successive years. The White Sox, of course, meant more to me. But the two of them together WAS the big national story.
