I took a little time this afternoon and looked on the NY Times database to see how much 1919 was talked about during the 1959 Series.


The attached article is IT

When I was in college, I wasted a day reading the October 1959 Chicago Tribunes in the Indiana University library. At least the stuff that was written by the Sox and Ed (?) Prell in particular. I didn't see Joe Jackson mentioned once.

I don't think the curses had been invented yet. Heck, even when I was a little kid and seeing the Cubs every day with Jack Brickhouse (what can I say, my mom was and still is a huge fan) I don't remember them saying ONE WORD about THEIR curse either.

Nelson Algren did some work during the WS for one of the papers, IIRC it was the Sun Times. He made some reference to the Black Sox, his boyhood team when he lived in the shadows of St. Columbanus on the south side. Go! Go! Go! Forty Years Ago is a great little story he penned.

Ha ha - good work!

Of course, it's clear the Sox this year are as real as they have been
since 1917, and that doesn't sit well with a lot of crybabies, apparently.

Although sometimes it is entertaining to watch them all
soil their pants in front of everyone.

You would have thought their mommas taught them about
'sportsmanship' or even...'class'.

I guess not.
