And I tell her that I don't know if that is true but I feel like I have been with the team longer than any of the players. Here we are into January and I still can't get enough about the Sox. I am constantly throwing in the DVDs or one of the World Series games on tape. I always find time for this site, looking for the newest White Sox stuff on ebay or listening to the Rooney calls of the season on my way to work. I am a life long diehard fan just like my dad and we just picked up some opening day tickets. This whole experience is even sweeter than I imagined it would be. Can't wait to tailgate with other Sox fans as World Champions. Go Sox!!!:D:

I always hear "you're watching the DVD again?"

Good times, this off-season. :D:

I heard that trying to watch Games 3 & 4 of the World Series...

"But you know who won already!"
"Yeah, but I was at work. I didn't SEE it."
"<Grumble grumble>."

That's because the players haven't been White Sox fans all their lives like many of us have. Yes, they are the players and of course it means a great deal to them personally, but they didn't suffer through what many of us did as longtime fans. I think that's why we have a totally different and unique appreciation for what was accomplished that they really can't relate to. :smile:

Soak it all in, because this is the greatest moment ever to be a Sox fan. Once April comes, a new season starts, and the memory will slowly fade just a bit. The team looks great on paper, but you never know what can happen on the field. If a terrible April happens, people will be in a bad mood again. Just relish every moment of being the undisputed World Series Champions.

That's so true. Time waits for nothing, baseball will go on and if you have a terrible season, all these good feelings are down the drain. The memories will never die, but still.

My dad--who's neither a Flub nor a Sox fan--will moan and groan about how much the Sox are on TV. "How much" means I've tried to catch an inning or two of the Comcast replay of the post-season, and the Sox Pride DVD.

Every White Sox team for the rest of our lives will be compared to the 2005 World Champions. Enjoy it, boys and girls. :gulp:

I have to admit, my husband the Cub fan is totally supportive of my insanity. Everytime I tell him I bought something else Sox-related, he says, "Enjoy it. These things don't happen very often." Of course, the fact that I won all that money on the World Series COULD have something to do with his attitude!

I do think he's getting tired of seeing me walk around smiling all over the place, though. :D:

My wife says,"you have a problem." I say,"yes I am obsessed, but you knew that before you married me."

Hopefully the dark clouds will stay at bay.

Last July,as the Sox were in the middle of their 4 game sweep
against the O's,my brother in law,a sCrUBS fan,of course,
asked if the Sox had won or lost that day.He was watching the game
where the Sox rallied from a 6-4 deficit to win 9-6,thanks to a 3 run HR
by AJ. I happily told him that the Sox had rallied to win the game.
He looked me straight in the eye and said,"You've got a horseshoe
up your ass;Enjoy it.It's your year".
The clincher: the Sox won the WS on my sister and
brother in law's 9th wedding anniversary. And they're both sCrUBS fans!!:bandance:

My husband is one of those guys who claims to be a "Chicago" fan. He says that when he was a kid, his father rooted for both teams, but the fact that they lived at Addison and Harlem sealed his fate. He still swears he roots for both teams, but I guarantee that if the Sox ever played the Cubs in the Series (yeah, THAT'LL happen!), he would root for the Cubs--and our 30-year marriage would be history. No teal.

My wife has been real good through this, in fact for the most part she says nothing negative and even 'roots' for hits when we watch any of the series games.

But the other day she was making wisecracks when I was watching ALDS Game 3 on my computer.

Then the next time I look up, she's wearing the Konerko jersey she begged for for Christmas! What's up with that?

My wife would kill me if I watched the games without her. Given that she won't be back from Baghdad till April, here is how our conversatons go:

Lt. Deuce: "What are you watching?"
Deuce: "Um... nothing."
Lt. Deuce: "Are you watching the games!?!?!?"
Deuce: "No sweetie, I'm watching porn, I swear!"
Lt. Deuce: "You better be!!!"

Make her sign a contract that if she EVER AGAIN cracks wise about anything Sox, her Konerko jersey is forfeit.

Mr.MarySwiss knows better. But back in '85, I actually made him sign a similar contract with regard to the Bears. Probably saved me a fortune in replacement furniture bills!
