October 25, 1955 - Sox co G.M.ís Chuck Comiskey and John Rigney make their first Sox trade: shortstop "Chico" Carrasquel and center fielder Jim Busby to Cleveland for slugging centerfielder Larry Doby, the lefthanded power hitter the Sox had been lacking the previous three years. The deal makes room for a rookie shortstop from Venezuela named Luis Aparicio.

October 25, 2005 - Game #3 of the World Series sets the record for the longest game by duration in history. The 14 inning game goes 5:41 minutes and ends when another Sox role player Geoff Blum belts a home run giving the club the lead at 6 - 5. It would end 7 - 5 with Game #2 starter Mark Buehrle picking up the save.

:whiner: :bandance: :whiner: :bandance: :whiner:

That game was insane. I was at the bar with my friends and we were practically falling asleep at the bar. We ended up leaving somewhere around the 12th. I got home and 5 minutes Geoff Blum hits one out. In a milion and one years I would have never guessed that he would have hit a HR. I was jumping on my couch watching the game and my phone was blowing up with family and friends. :whiner:

To quote Warren Zevon...."His Hair Was Perfect". So glad I stayed up for it's entirety.

Geoff Blum, you and your hair are drinking for free if I ever see you in a bar. Wow. Incredible game. I still get goosebumps when even I re-watch the game on my DVD set...

I didn't care what happened really, I just wanted the drama to be over for the night.

Houston blew so many chances. They deserved to get beat by the likes of Blum.

I tried to stay up, but by the top of the 13th, I just couldn't make it. After Pods bunted into the DP and knowing Marte was coming in, I figured it would've been over. I woke up a few times in the night, but I never turned on the TV to check the store. Finally, my alarm goes off at 6:10. I have it on WBBM: "Coming up, Josh is going to tell you who had the game winning HR for the Sox last night!". I woke up really quick, turned on the TV, and couldn't believe it. One game away! My friends and I were planning on watching the clincher at the bar we hang out. However, we were so tired, we just watched it at one of our houses. Good thing they won the game 4. I had class the night of game five. I also felt relieved. It felt like I hadn't slept in a month...

I didn't go to bed untill 2 am that night, but it was well worth it.I didn't get to bed until almost 3 am, and I just about had to chomp my entire tongue off to keep from yelling and waking up my wife.
Ah, the memories...

Indeed. I was about to go home from the bar since work was calling, but I had a feeling that Blum would do something. :D:

Like everyone else, I could not believe the dramatic way in which this game ended. I was shocked. I went to bed around 3am, got up at 6 to go to work. I stumbled into work, so tired and happy I didn't know what to do. I remember walking around downtown that day and seeing people wearing Sox caps with huge smiles on their faces. It was great. We could almost taste the WS victory by then. We only needed to win one more game ...
