Great plays by Uribe in the final two innings-that dive into the crowd was impressive.

As was the stop on the final out. Caps are being tipped in Chicago's general direction as I speak.

In other news, no Omar Vizquel at SS on the Latin Legends team? Maybe just my anti-Slappy McBluelip (tm I forget who) bias, but he was born in Miami, no?

Alex was born in NY... as was Manny...

I guess being name Rodriguez and Ramirez is latin enough.

Manny
Alex Rodriguez

Even if Manny was born in New York, he was a citizen of the Dominican Republic until he recently bacame a US citizen. Doesn't Arod want to be part of the Dominican Republic World Baseball team or whatever that's called?
Back to the ChiSox, They were clearly the best team.

Nice job by the Houston fans to all get out of the way and help their own guy make an out...it was the anti-Bartman. Especially the guy with the blue jacket with tan sleeves.

(image removed)

When the home team's hitting you try and catch the ball, when the road team's hitting THAT'S when you get out of the way.

That reminded me of the Seattle fan's tendency to reach over and grab fair ball hit by the Mariners to take potential triples away, but letting them go by if it's one hit by the opponent so they don't mess up Ichiro or something, allowing the opposing baserunner to take third. That makes me CRAZY, but it's likely from having grown up a Red Sox fan where you learn that stuff growing up, I guess.

Mike & Mike had a good solution to this. There should be "seat attendants" (like flight attendants) and a folding card telling you what to do if you have good seats to a game, just like when you on a plane sitting in a exit row.

Great job by the White Sox. They way they dominated the Series was almost clinical, and they had four ex-Mariners: Garcia, Podsednik, Marte, and Widger. And Joey Cora can cry happy tears now.

As far as the All Latino Team was Mike Lowell on there? He was born in Panama I think.

The four game sweep just seemed so...anti-climatic for me. With a great regular season and very good postseason, I was hoping the World Series would deliver on some sort of drama or competition. Ah well.

Congrats to the Sox.

Congratulations to the White Sox and their fans out there. I normally despise Chicago-area teams but I enjoyed watching a team that suffered long and had been ignored grab a little attention. First WS winner in 20 years that I enjoyed watching.

BTW, I thought it was interesting to visit an old thread that was started after "that team" exorcised its demons last year. Much discussion about the White Sox being the "next" team....

Wow, almost exactly a year ago, I wrote about wanting to see the White Sox win it in my lifetime. One season, it didn't take long! Thanks, the-w.com! Glad to see we can get "long-suffering" out of there and just be White Sox fans. I was fortunate enough to be at Game 2 and it was an experience I'll never forget. Welcome to the Chicago Pantheon, 2005 White Sox.

I could say so much right now...but I'll just leave it with that I learned last night that champagne in your eyes after a World Series win gives you the most wonderful stinging sensation imaginable.

One thing that is kind of scary to realize...in the last calendar month of baseball, the White Sox lost 1 game. Not bad for a team who was about to "choke".

That being said, which team's next and/or would you like to see end the drought? Except the Cubs. Let's be a little realistic. ;)

Based on the way they finished this year & the fact that they're starting with pretty much the same team, I'd say the Indians are a good team with a drought to be on the lookout for...

Apparently Chicago White Sox fans are the anti-Bartmans, as according to local sports radio here, those seats were secured by a church group of White Sox fans, hence everyone getting out of the way for their shortstop running for the catch. One last bit of good luck I guess.

I'd still really like to see Biggio/Bagwell get a ring...but you can't help but assume this was their best/last chance. The Twins are an awesome bunch of guys, I would definitely have their back.

Unless they're facing my Giants of course, who are my forever #1 wish to see hold the trophy.

Congrats to the White Sox and their fans. Let's do this again next year.

The Blue Jays....after all, it's been 12 years! *crickets chirping*

That was the most competitive sweep I've ever seen. The Astros played hard in every game, but in the end, they were just the Jerry Lynn to Chicago's RVD. Congrats to the White Sox, as it was a long time coming.

Longest current droughts.....Cubs (1908), Indians (1948), Giants (1954), Astros (1961), Expos/Senators (1969), Pilots/Brewers (1969), and then the Rangers (whenever they joined as the second version of the Senators) the Mariners (1977), Rockies (1993) and Devil Rays (1998). I dunno about you, but I'm looking forward to that Colorado/Tampa Bay World Series next season!

Wouldn't that be Expos/Nationals?

Oh yeah, Toronto winning again...I'd like to see that one again. I still have the newspaper from their first win. Touch 'em all Joe, indeed.

I admit, I was bored, watching the final game; but also, I kinda wanted Houston to win it so that Chicago would be able to take it at home.

I will give major props to the Houston fans. Even though Chicago won, they were a classy bunch and cheered for them when the game was finished.

Expos/Nationals that is

Col 45/Astrosas well - and it's 62.

Rangers/Senators ('61 is when the Rangers of today started as the Senators, even though the most recent Senator's team had moved THAT YEAR to Minnesota) Then they moved to Texas in '72)

Angels also came in in '61. Da Mets and Colt 45s came in in '62 not 61.

The way the Padres played in the playoffs, I'd say THEY were really drunk at some point for about a month in October.

As for who breaks the drought next, I just hope it isn't the Cubs for a long, long time. I love the idea of White Sox fans throwing this one in the face of Cubs fans repeatedly. Maybe then the North Siders would realize that as long as they keep packing Wrigley Field and accepting bad teams, management has no incentive to make the team better.
