About the only upsetting play was seeing Alex being doubled off from from first in the 8th but without Alex's bat, we don't win last night so I'll excuse Alex for that mental error.
I am enjoying every minute of this pennant race and it's great to see our Sox still battling. Just a few more hours to go until today's game and my heart is already racing. Keep on winning, White Sox!
PS: I forgot to mention earlier how great it was to see Robin smiling and congratulating each player individually as he came back to the dugout after the win last night. Great moments.

October26 - Twenty-SEVEN years ago, I married my husband on October 26. Since that day, we have been blessed with a wonderful family. Then, on October 26, 2005, when the baseball gods bestowed their good fortunes upon us, we saw the White Sox win the World Series. An incredibly talented team of grinders made every Sox fan's dream come true. My family and I celebrated with reckless abandon. And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!
