Most of the 37,518 ticket holders were actually in their seats—despite the Bears on TV—pushing the Sox’ season attendance to a team-record 2,957,414, and after the final out the players milled in front of the dugout to soak up the cheers and doff their caps in response. A skeptic might suggest this season was one long victory lap, but I think it was more than that. It was a season of respect and appreciation, a lovefest. Winning changes everything, it seems, even losing.

Matthew gets the credit. He pointed it out to me.

I think I felt a little better after I read it.

I loved reading this.

And they loved their team in spite of its faults, not because of them (for that, try Wrigley Field).

Heck, the 2006 White Sox have already won 90 games. That is a pretty fair season. A little disappointing that they are not in the playoffs but that happens. Really the only disappontments have been the starting pitching and the lead-off hitting. And that has cost them a second run at the championship. KW will almost certainly fix both of those this off-season.

I am looking forward to the 2007 season greatly.
