OK, I Can here the don't jinx them posts coming; but if the Sox make it to the Series again, would you enjoy it more or at least the same as last year? Or would nothing compare to last year?

While it can never compare to the first time, I don't think I could ever become jaded to the Sox making it to the Series.
I'd still be going out of my mind!!

I don't think anything can compare to last year, there was just so many special moments that are so hard to match.

Personally, I hope they don't do it again. I can't take yet another year of being told by Cub fans that the White Sox players had "career" years and played "over their heads."

Really, can we settle for third place or something like that?

The first time is always the sweetest, but there's something special about establishing a dynasty too. You can't really call a repeat a dynasty, but if we can manage to 3peat, I think the 3rd would be really damn sweet.

How about after they win out this decade, we debate which one was the best? :D:

Nothing like the first time.

However, I would not mind finding out that I'm wrong.

It'll be better, less tension and you know what to expect. Athletes themselves often say the second one they tend to enjoy more for those reasons.

Oh, I think I could bear up to it again, just as much, if not more, than last year. Can you spell DYNASTY? :cool:

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though. It's a long season. One day at a time. However, they're playing like world champs. It's good to be king.

Indeed. It was nervewracking, overwhelming and was over way too quickly.

Wait, what are we talking about again? :redface:

You never forget your first time...

I think personally it's really comparing apples to oranges. A true Sox fan is going to live and die each game, 162 games a season. Every season is going to have its own special moments, its own hardships, and its own triumphs. Last October was magical, but every October with the Sox whether it the first time or 10th time is going to be something amazing everytime cause every season is going to have its own story.

:gulp:

It's sweeter if we repeat. Knowing you can play and winning it is AWESOME! Doing it again makes everyone else say, "Holy ****".

We can hope. I will enjoy it more as it will be easier to keep my shorts dry this time. The curse is lifted and it looks like we will be in the mix for a while to come.

I can handle another one of those World Series Championships . . . and another . . . and another . . . A strong image of a three-peat keeps popping into my mind. Maybe it's the way the contracts of all the important players on the Sox are set up, maybe it's the intense, "let's keep winning it" attitude by KW, but I feel the White Sox are not through with championships just yet. This will be a special period for the organization, the players, and the fans. I can see it unfolding. But first, let's repeat.

You bet, I can handle this, as much as the White Sox are willing to provide.

:cool:

What curse? Curses are for Boston and the team up north.

The thing that would make it better is if we could do it and clinch at home...with the fans (me included) there to see it.

DON'T JINX OUR SOX!!! :D:

But, seriously! I'd be a lot more relaxed this year, since we've already got one championship under our belts. I know I'd sleep a lot better for sure!

Eventually when we start having .500 teams down the road, it's going to be really hard to adjsut to. I think this team will be a dynasty though.

Nothing will ever top last year, esp with all the jagbags who started dark clouding and whining during that august slump

Honestly I thought nothing would compare and that this year would feel totally different and not nearly as intense. But so far I'm in a way even more glued to every game. Perhaps its just that they are so amazing to watch, but I honestly think that it would be equally amazing. Maybe not as "magical" but still as powerful and an even greater accomplishment. It seems like everyone gives us their best game every day this year and we're still winning at virtually the same early season pace of last year. Its a very long way to go and there will be plenty of ups and downs, but another ring would be equally sweet I tell ya.

No curse. I guess just 88 years of bad luck!

Curses are excuses for losers like the ones up north. All I hear at the office is how the WS win was a fluke. They can't even give the respect. But the one thing I have my solace in is not only did we win it but we also beat them back in the 1906 WS. What I would love is to have that happen again so we can finally shove the trophy up their collective rear ends!

A LOT of underachieving, especially over the last sixteen years, the 1950s Go-Go era, 1964, 1967, 1983, 1993, 2003. but now we have a chance to change that. hell, until the braves rose from the dead in 1991, they were only known as henry aaron and gaylord perry's team. now, they're a baseball standard of excellence, despite their postseason futility. honestly, i don't think they've ever recovered after losing that 1996 series to the Yankees. If Wohlers throws Leyritz a fastball, the Yankees never even start that title run. so, i hope that the sox seize the moment to change the identity of the franchise, and i think they will be successful.

Couldn't find the tag. Heck, I couldn't find the regular tags of JM and Nardi either. I suspect West has been cleaning up the database, but I might just be going blind - which would truly suck since I am already deaf...:tongue:

I will never be happier or more excited about anything in sports as I was when the Sox won the WS last year. It was an unbelievable moment.

That being said, I'm enjoying this year more than any past season I can remember. Now that the weight of 88 years of failure has been removed, it's much easier to just sit back, relax and enjoy the game.

Exactly, i wouldnt had minded a 90+ loss(like the cubs) to get top prospects(at the time wood and prior) but instead we had these above .500 seasons that left us with crappy draft picks, good enough for second, crap for draft. Amazing the players we got and how the developed in the draft

While overall it will be hard to top last year, consider these possibilities in a 2006 championship run...

1) exceeding the 100 win mark, and setting a new franchise record for victories in a season.
2) beating the Yankees in the playoffs (another first)
3) beating the best team in the NL, instead of a sub-90 win wild-card team

Hit the trifecta and it will truly validate the quality of this team in the eyes of the baseball public.
