11/23/05: Sox fans were still basking in the glow of the team's world championship when Kenny Williams went to work making a big trade and also running a South Side icon out of town.

September was a lively month for Sox fans and the Trib. The team won their first seven games, then stumbled a bit while a super hot Cleveland Indians team that had been 15 games back on August 1st suddenly couldn't lose and started gaining ground. At one point, they closed the gap to 1.5 games during a gut-wrenching September series between them.

When I complimented him on it, he modestly deflected the praise by saying it was like "shooting fish in a barrel." I always liked to see a new post by him in that thread.

I fondly remember back in July 2005 when Dr. Crawdad started a thread called "You write tomorrow's Cubune headline." It was a response to Scott Podsednik defeating Derek Jeter in the fan's vote for the final All-Star representative. Craw asked WSIers how the Tribune would spin it. (Note: I HATE the word "Cubune" but I would be dishonest if I didn't use it, because that...
