Driving home last night, I got to hear Rooney's calls of the Crede home run and the Sox's scoring in the 9th, which was wonderful.

But is that it for Rooney, or do the local guys get to announce the World Series, too? I hope so.

ESPN1000 and ONLY ESPN1000 can have the local announcers. The other stations on the White Sox network must carry ESPN National

If there is no John and Ed then one of us will just have to do it because fox tv and the main espn staion are a real drag man.

That is so nice to hear!!! I cannot wait to listen to Rooney and Farmio one last time!

Chances if we win the WS, Rooney cries? High

I taped it off the radio. Kinda disappointed in it, nothing unique about it, he was obviously caught up in the emotion of the moment.

"In September of '59, the White Sox celebrated a trip to the World Series They are trying to set off that celebration on Oct. 16. They need an out to set off the celebration. … Here's a swing and a ground ball to first. Konerko steps on the bag.

The White Sox have won the pennant! They've won the pennant! And they're going to the World Series! They're mobbing Konerko, and they'll start the World Series at home on the South Side next weekend.

Oh, baby. The White Sox finished off the Angels. … Celebrate, White Sox fans, celebrate. The White Sox are going to their first World Series since 1959."

I still can't believe they're letting probably the best PBP man in baseball go. It's just ridiculous.

I've heard some rumblings that there is an outside chance Rooney might be back next year.

I sure hope he's doing the world series. I really enjoyed hearing his pennant call last night. I tried listening to some of the tv feed, but I got sick of them promoting an Angels comback and that ****ing RALLY MONKEY!

His call on the final out was awesome. I think it went something like "...GROUNDBALL TO KONEKO, HE STEPS ON THE BAG...THE WHITE SOX HAVE WON THE PENNANT!!!!! THE WHITE SOX HAVE WON THE PENNANT!!!!!" Heard the replay driving home last night from Shoeless Joe's. I got goosebumps, and actually yelled out loud in my car "AWWWW HELL YEAHHHHHHH !!!!!!!"

I can only hope that when they make the highlight DVD for this year that there is a lot of Farmer & Rooney when showing all of the playoff footage.

I tried launching the audio off of this page (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/ps/y2005/audio.jsp?view=ana_cws), but it just sat there saying "connecting to media".

He actually threw in "A White Sox winner" in between the second mention of the penneant and the word "And"

We should plead with the Score to fire North and use that money to hire John Rooney. They'll get more of a return on investment from JR than from that clown North.

At a minimum, there should selectable audio tracks with Rooney and Farmer being one of the selections. Brooks?

Rooney's the best in the business. I can't get enough of this call. It'll go above Hawk's call of Bo Jackson's home run in '93.

I posted an MP3 of it a few hours ago. I think it was part of another thread that got merged into this one.

It's really hard for me to imagine anyone doing the Sox radio broadcasts other than John Rooney. I usually listen to Hawk and DJ, but I listened to a lot of Sox games this September cause I don't get CSN in my dorm.

I often listen to games more when I am working nights. When I watch games I tend to turn down the volume and listen to Rooney and Farmeio, they are more entertaining.
