I've said since that night if I could relive any day of my life, it would be October 26, 2005.

Man that night was amazing.

A day I will never forget. Not nearly as much fun as being there for the exciting Game 2 victory, though--I was alone in my hotel room in Alexandria, VA. I did go out to the parking lot and honk my rental car's horn, though.:redneck Then I went back up to my room and started clicking on WS05 stuff on mlb.com like a madman. Luckily, I was just barely sober enough to clear out my shopping cart of all but a couple of things before clicking "Submit".

This is the greatest, most unforgettable night of my life as a Sox fan, and images like this bring me to tears almost like clockwork.

The whole experience is something I will tell my Grandchildren about, from the 4 complete games in the ALCS, to the bullpens performance in Game 1 of the WS to PK's Granny and Pods walk-off, the draining game 3 with the unlikeliest of heroes at the end, and culminating with the 1-0 victory to clinch it It was the most exciting month of my life. The parade is the single most exciting event I have ever been to it was truly amazing. Now I propose a toast to the best baseball TEAM I will probably ever see.

Roland Hemond celebrated his birthday that same evening and got the most special present possible...a World Series crown.

As he told me once, the feeling that you get when you are a part of something like that is so special that it makes you want to get up in the morning, go out to the ballpark and do it again and again and again.

As for me I was watching at home with my wife and just at the exact moment of the final out, just as the players started running to the mound in celebration, our door bell rang.

I opened it and it was my friend, Frank Mercogliano, the Sports Information Director for Idaho State University.

I said something like 'what the hell are you doing here?' and he said 'come out here,' I thought maybe something happened.

When I stepped away from the house he pulled out an open bottle of champagne he was hiding behind his back and started pouring it on me! It was amazing. (and yes I still have the bottle!)

I remember the bottom of the ninth like no other, even with the 12 pack of Molson Ice I already had in me to calm my nerves. My dad who just moved to Florida the year before called me, and we both couldn't believe it was going to happen in three short outs. I was watching at a friends apartment.

When Uribe caught the ball in the stands, we both went crazy on the phone in disbelief. That's when we knew the Sox weren't going to blow this one.

Then when Uribe threw over to Konerko for the last out, I remember yelling and screaming on the phone with my dad, but everything else around me went black, couldn't tell you what happened for the next five minutes besides spraying bottles of champagne all over each other in the apartment.

The next morning was the day to collect all the newspapers and enjoy the glory. Even to this day, I'm still in a sort of disbelief that it actually did happen.

Something I'll never forget and tell my kids one day.

I did not know the Charles Comiskey died on 10-26. How errie is that? The man who caused the 1919 scandal dies on the same day the ghosts are vindicated. Baseball is wierd that way......

It was 12:00 AM on the East Coast, and like I mentioned before, my son turned 1. The previous year, the night he was born, the Red Sox won the series (full lunar eclipse to boot).

Not a bad two years, no?

Even though the Sox swept the series, Every game was exciting and close. What was the score of Game 1 again? I remember it being close and Jenks had to strike out Bagwell in the 8th in order to keep the Astros from tying the game. I could be talking about game 2 though. Of course Pods' walkoff will always be ingrained in my sports memory. I had a class in college at 9 AM the on 10/26 but I absolutely had to stay up to watch the conclusion of game 3. And who can forget that the tying run was on 3rd in game 4 when it ended?

I will never forget my dad, standing up with his hands on his head, and jumping so high that he nearly touched the ceiling with the final out.
I will never forget the tears, the hugs, and the utter joy of our white sox being crowned world champs. Never.

I was skiing in Utah in Feb. '05 during Super Bowl weekend. The day after the Super Bowl, I was in line getting food on the mountain and the guy in front of me had a Red Sox hat on. I congratulated him on the Pats' victory. He told "we're working on a dynasty." I told him they had one already with the Pats' string of SB victories. The guy then mentioned that they also had the Red Sox. I told him "this October, the headlines will read 'Sox Win the World Series' but won't say 'again'." It took him a second to realize what I said and then smiled at me.

I wish I had some way to contact that guy to let him know this weekend's Lottery numbers......

There are some other eerie facts if I remember correctly.

The 1918 Red Sox won the World Series and the pro hockey league at the time went on strike in the offseason, followed by a 1919 Sox pennant.

Then in 2004, the Red sox won it all, followed by an NHL strike, followed by...a Sox pennant, only we didn't screw it up this time.

And also, that show is for snotty, rich, white girls that cry and cry when their parents (who can't control their kids) don't let them fly to Spain to pick out their party dress (but then cave) or when a rapper can't sing at their party. (But then send them a satellite Happy D-Day wish.)

I was in a bar in the middle of Wrigleyville West (Glen Ellyn) with my neighbor. My wife who I spent the other 2 "best nights of my life" with (our marriage and Superbowl 31 in new orleans) was at home, sleeping. Paulie caught the final out, the place exploded and everyone ran out onto Roosevelt Road and then we booked home. I came running into the house to find my wife sleeping. I woke her up and she said "have fun celebrating" then went back to sleep. After calling my sister and other friends trying to get them to go downtown to party, I gave up and went back into the bedroom and stood next to the bed for 4 freaking hours flicking inbetween channels watching the coverage, hyperventilating and crying. I now know what it feels to go into shock, I didn't move for 4 hours. I ended up just saying screw it and went to work at 5 AM.

Did anyone else sleep that week? I think I got about 5 hours a sleep the entire playoff and WS run.

I had a Wednesday night class (7-950) that semester. Worst possible time of day and worst day of the week because we all know how big Wednesdays were. I skipped every class that fell on a game night without thinking twice, it was a given. I even told my professor "can I have the homework, because I'm not gonna be here next week, I'll be watching baseball."

After Uribe's two plays (the foul out where he dove into the stands and the slow grounder to Konerko) I just screamed for at least 45 minutes. Game 3 was weird and I was almost going through cardiac arrest watching the game on my little TV in my barracks room. All I have to say about our one run in Game 4 is Jermaine Dye is Your Father.

It was an extra special day for me. Not only did the Sox win Game 3, Game 4, and the championship, but I was given an expanded sales territory at work that day that meant about a 30% pay raise for me.

But the greatest memory I'll take from that time was the overwhelming feeling that my Dad was right beside me for those three weeks in October. Must have been that old picture of him holding a northern pike in his tri-color Sox cap that I carried in my pocket every day that month.

Of course, I had a disappointing '06 just like the Sox, as my company restructured in September and gave me the pink slip!

I was on shift watching AFN Sports and during the rain delay, last year's World Series film was shown again. Man, that brought chills to me. I was cheering along with the 46 pitch inning off Oswalt, Pods' homerun, Konerko's slam, Buehrle's save, Jenks overall, Uribe's plays of course, BLUM, Dye in general, and last but certainly not least Garcia's 7 shutout innings in Game 4, driving that shift's NCO a little nuts; he told me to turn down the volume on the screen. Note to self:When you get back to Colorado in about eight to nine days, buy or order the White Sox World Series DVD Box Set and the White Sox Pride Disc. If other soldiers were not around me, I would have weeped with joy while watching the wonderous events unfolding before my very eyes once again. White Sox Rule.

I remember yelling and jumping around at the bar and grabbing my car keys to split. My father's dogtag is on it and I was holding the dogtag so tight I thought it cut through my palm. He took me every year on my birthday to a Sox game if they were home until he passed away during the strike season (no less). He was there watching, I know it, just like every other sox fan that has gone to the next stage.

I was dressed in my World Series Locker Room T-shirt and my Sox earrings. I ran into some Bears fans there and reminded them that one year ago today was the greatest day in sports history!

Along with the days my nephews and niece were born, the day my sister was married, my parents' 40th anniversary and the day my two best friends since childhood were married, that was one of the best days of my life.

Even now listening to all the clips and watching the highlights of last season brings a tear of joy to my eye.

I write this as I look up at all the Sox stuff hanging in my cube at work.

Damn, it's good to be a Sox fan.

So small, so simple, but what a beautiful sentence!

05 will be one of the best years of my life! My daughter was born in January and I got to spend the entire year watching the sox and enjoying the World Series with my father that has been a fan since he was a kid growing up in the '50's. What a tremendous year... everytime I hear Rooney say "that's a White Sox Winner and a World Championship" I leterally get goose bumps and start to tear up. Of course I hold back the tears cause I'm a "guy". haha

We had been working hard all day getting ready to Deploy to Iraq. The Vehicles and equipment were all packed up and on their way to the ports. The duty day was just about over and I was ready to sit down to a case of PBR, and Game 4. but we were put on lockdown :angry: :whiner: :angry: :whiner: because some idiot in Bravo BTRY had misplaced a radio.:angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: . I was goin insane. I called my Dad back home repeatdly for updates. finally in the 5th inning they found the radio (3 towns over in a vechle headed for port), we were dissmissed. I raced to the Class 6:gulp: (beer store) raced back to my room, drank my 12 pack of PBR, and watched Da Southsiders win it all. I almost missed the greatest day of my life.

I've said since that night if I could relive any day of my life, it would be October 26, 2005.

Man that night was amazing.

I'm still amazed you wrote that piece within a few hours of almost freezing to death out there - truly a REAL fan! :cool:

You said it! I'd definitely love to relive 10.26.05. The chaos of everything that was that night is indescribable.

Yeah, and your theme song should be "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" :redneck.
