A Moment of Silence…

Okay, okay, I can hear all the Cubs fans out there crowing in glee… And, yes, I’ll admit I’ve done my share of bleating like a happy goat when assorted bad things have happened to the Cubs, too. Not too adult of me, I’ll admit it, but after having lived in the Chicago metro area for longer than I’ve lived other places combined I’ve learned the fine art of supporting your team. As we all know, you CAN’T support both the Cubs and the Sox… It’s simply not done.

But now it’s time to admit my Chicago White Sox are… are… not in the playoffs this year. There, I said it. Very painful, but we did have last year, after all. And it was FAB-U-LOUS!

No big celebrations this year, but what’s worst of all is it’s nearly the end of baseball season. How did THAT happen? This is one thing both Cubs and Sox fans can agree on, that it’s all coming to an end all too soon.

But, for now, a few images of what made last year so exceptional:

And one thing that made last year just a bit weird:manllickingtrophy.jpg

Yes, this man is licking the White Sox World Series trophy. I can’t explain it. I just report it.

Ah, well, so much for 2006. The good news is opening day 2007 will be a short 5 or 6 months away.

In Memorium, 2006

White Sox! White Sox! Gooooooo White Sox!

Let’s go go go White Sox
We’re with you all the way
You’re always in there fighting and you do your best
We’re glad to have you out here in the middle west

We’re gonna root root root root White Sox
And cheer you on to victory
When we’re in the stands we’ll make those rafters ring
All through the season you’ll hear us sing

Let’s go go go White Sox
Chicago’s proud of you

Root root root root for the White Sox
We’ll cheer you on the victory
When we’re in the stands we’ll make those rafters ring
All through the season you’ll hear us sing

Let’s go go go White Sox
Chicago’s proud of you

Let’s go go go White Sox
Chicago is proud of you

P.S.: We’ll get ’em next year…
