Default The Last Time The Blackhawks Won the Stanley Cup...

...the White Sox went on a tear in 2010. Odds are it won't happen again in 2013, but it's nice to think about.

I recall that very night the White Sox completely DESTROYED whoever they were playing. And Brent Lillibridge hit a homer (a grand slam?) to the deepest part of center field.

I think they were playing the Yankees. That might be completely wrong, though. They won 25 of 30 starting that night.

I really don't want that to happen. This team needs a bad season to convince them that change is needed.

If they won 25 of their next 30 it would probably put them in first place and I could live without any changes but we all know it ain't going to happen.

That hot streak in 2010 was something else. I've never seen a Sox team get so scorching hot and we may never see anything like that again. In true White Sox fashion though, it wasn't quite enough to seize the division title. This year's Sox team has too many self inflicted gunshot wounds and a far weaker offense than the 2010 squad to go on any kind of run close to that. However, it is baseball and crazy stuff happens from time to time. I'm sure fans of the 2005 Astros weren't thinking NL Pennant when they were 15 games under .500.

They played the Pirates. As for this comparison, I can't see any kind of rally this year.

If they won 25 of 30, I'd quit my job, sell our house, and become a peddler.

Save time, play the lotto the next 30 nights if the Sox win 25/30 "odds are" you'll hit the jackpot at least once...

An even better idea! My wife wasn't too crazy about the house selling idea, even though I told her there's nothing to worry about.

I'm reminded of some George Thorogood lyrics....

"I don't know man, my wife kinda funny...."

"I know, everybody funny, now you funny too".

Actually got around to looking it up and it was the Tigers.
