Funny that WGN does not use that audio to what footage they have of that celebration............I guess Jack never broadcasted Sox games on WGN:o:

"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 spoke with Ed today and he said later in the week he'll be doing another feature on the web site. He also said thanks to WSI, his 8 year old son plays the 'Go-Go Sox' Song by Captain Stubby 15 times a day... :smile:

except he DID say "it's a white sox winner". I have it on my iPod. here's the real transcription via sweetness:
"contreras gave up 2 runs in the fifth and fell behind 3-2. He has been tough, tough, tough since then... Here's a swing, and a ground ball to first! Konerko has it! He steps on the bag! The White Sox have won the pennant! They've won the pennant! A white sox winner, and they're going to the world series! They're mobbing Konerko on the first-base side of the infield. The White Sox have won four in a row, and they'll start the World Series at home on the south side next weekend! ohhh baby!"
