Nice video, but I'm petty sure it was later than 9:53pm wasnt it? I was on the east coast and I know they won it on my bday (east coast time) on the 27th, so I was pretty sure it was after 11pm central time.

Nice video, but I'm petty sure it was later than 9:53pm wasnt it? Yes it was... it was at around 11:05pm. I know because I was working a couple miles from my apartment and skipped out a few minutes early, then hit the gas and got home right at 11pm just in time to see the final half inning.

Eh, they didn't seem to go that crazy. Puffers was wilder. I'm sure there were bigger reactions than that. And, yes, it was much later than 9:53 or whatever time that video said. It was after 10:30 becuase the news cut into the late night talk shows.

I was at Durbin's in Burbank for the final out and it was wall-to-wall silver and black and a huge celebration to follow. Also running out into the streets holding up Sox banners to honking horns. Thanks for reminding me of the events of that glorious night.

A night I'll remember forever. :D:

I have beer stains on my Konerko jersey from that night! Puffers STILL had a little bit of silly string and a ton of beer stains on its ceilings as of the last time I was there (which WILL be the last time for me to be there unless an apology is given to an undeserving recipiant).

Not to take anything away from their celebration, but I was more in the bear-hugging complete strangers, sore handed, completely covered in champagne, shot drinking camp.

I cried I was so happy. LongLiveFisk, I was just up 79th from ya, watching the game in my apartment. I had cold beer on hand (in the fridge) and a great vantage point (my love seat, the more comfy seat strategically placed directly in front of the TV). After I cried, I opened up my door and all my windows and blared "We Are The Champions" by Queen.

I was watching the video and thinking, "okay, so when do they show the celebration?"

Sitting at home, wanting to spend the night with my family, my kids are too young for a bar, but have gone to many games (my daughter, anyhow) and wanted to remember the night with my family. I remember pacing the room all night, sure that the 1 run would not be enough. Bobby comes on for the hold, and I watch, and I watch, the whole time thinking it couldn't be real. How could this be happening? My kids are going to see something that my Dad never did, and I, almost 40 years old now, have waited my whole life to see.
I began jumping up and down uncontrollably after Uribe's catch of the foul ball, cheering and half crying. Last out, it was going in slow motion. I remember thinking "Oh my God, Bobby, get your fat a** down, you are going to mess up the play." Juan makes the scoop, Paulie makes the catch, and I just started sobbing. Hugging my daughter, who was also crying, my husband, and sitting there in stunned disbelief, still sobbing. Then as things calmed down, having a few drinks, laughing at Carl calling for his "baby girl", and just taking a mental picture to remember where I was, who I was with, and what had actually just happened.

Then of course the 101 phone calls. Especially the ones to my brother-in-laws, who just happen to be die hard Cubs fans. God that was fun. I have a very good friend of mine that has a beautiful bar here, and had a fabulous crowd and celebration for the entire series, but I could not imagine spending it with anyone else other than my family.

One thing I've wondered since then is how many people were out at the cemeteries the next day, visiting their deceased friends and relatives who were Sox fans? I saw several out at Resurrection (and no, I didn't see Resurrection Mary :tongue: ).

Too bad you weren't at Durbin's. That place was really rocking and it was just something I wanted to experience with a ****load of Sox fans, as opposed to sitting at home (like I usually do).

Being able to do it again would mean even more. :D:

The only similarity to my 10.26.05 experience I saw in that video was the guy with the Sox hat backwards swaying back & forth. I was amidst well over 100 people at Puffer's- my hands over my mouth in disbelief and tears streaming down my face for the whole bottom of the 9th inning, all while unable to stand still. After the final out was made, I hugged a friend of chisoxmike's, who I'd been standing with; she & I were then knocked to the ground! IronFisk helped us up and we were showered with silly string, beer, champagne, water, you name it. Undoubtedly the greatest night of my White Sox life filled with moments & memories I'll never forget. :smile:

That celebrating was nothing compared to my house. We ran outside and everyone was pouring beer on each other and pretty much everyone on our street was outside screaming. some people were even shooting off fireworks... (the cub fans didn't appreciate it very much though... :D:)
Edit: I also remember my brothers dancing around our backyard. One had a broom, and i'm pretty sure the other had a rake. after that, the beer showers began!

I was McNally's with about 150 other true Sox fans. My friends and I got there two hours before the game and still could only stand in the middle of the bar.
The place truly went nuts at the end of the game. The party spilled onto Western Ave, where it lasted well into the night.
The only bad thing about that night was that I couln't get any cell service. The system must've been overloaded at the time.

Oh well!

I was also at Puffers. Sober as a kite, believe it or not.

My 1934 Appling Jersey was caked in champagne and beer, etc. I took it to the cleaners just this past April and all they removed all the stains. :D: It took me a while to take it to the cleaners because we were moving and I just threw it in a box with all my other clothes. No need to think I am a scumbag.

Puffer's was a hell of a good time to watch all the world series games at.

In the SMO household, I was louder and crazier from way earlier that same night, when the Sox won the 14 inning game 3. That's when I knew that the World Series championship was inevitable. Had the Astros won game 3 with two more at home, who knows what happens? But all's well that ends well.

Much later that same day, for game 4, I saw the last couple of innings at the bowling alley, after watching as much of the game between frames as I could. The bowling alley bar was loud and crazy, too, but it wasn't a 100% White Sox crowd like you Puffer's denizens enjoyed.

I was at home with my mother, brother and his girlfriend. We were standing in the basement, because afterall it was the final out. When Konerko caught that ball and that ump made the out gesture my brother and I were screaming. We ran into each others arms screaming and jumping up and down. We then went outside and proceeded to spray beer all over each other. We broke a bottle near the edge of the driveway and I just cleaned the final remnants of the glass up a month ago. People were driving by waving brooms out of the car windows, I swear I heard an air raid siren. We then went to Panos at 95th and Kedzie and partied well into the night. It was the greatest night of my life. The next day when I went work I brought donuts for the whole office. These are all memories that mean a great deal to me because exactly one month later we burried my brother who died very suddenly. I will never forget the look on his face when they won it was priceless.

This is interesting. An article at the time, I don't remember what or when, mentioned that about half of the burial plots at one Chicago area cemetery, had White Sox memorabilia.

That image will stay with me my whole life. It symbolizes the way Sox fans are born and raised from generation to generation and how emotional we are about the tradition. It shows our gratitude to the moms & dads, grandmas and grandpas, etc. who took us to the ballpark when we were kids but were not alive to see the glorious Sox championship. It reflects the way baseball used to be family and neighborhood oriented before national TV, FOX, ESPN and multi million dollar contracts.

Sorry about your bro. Great that you could share that experience with him, though, and treasure it now.

I was sick as a dog for both games 3 & 4, and was at home, alone, in my recliner. I had almost no voice, so I could hardly even whoop it up. A little bit of crying, and lots of disbelief that I had just witnessed what I had, and I went to bed a very satisfied man.

I had watched game 3 at the bar with some friends and even though I was invited to go to a few bars to watch the game I figured that since I had been there all year with my dad it was only fitting that I be at home with him to watch it when they won it all. So my sisters, mother, sister's husband, my dad and I were at their home by Midway to watch the game. When they won the firestation down the street sounded the air raid siren and up and down Archer Avenue my sister and I drove.

We live very close to Panos and know a lot of the guys in there. Many of them we grew up with but it is definately a dive but also a safe stumbling distance from home.
