I never imagined I would still be speaking about the Sox. I am so pleased that sports mags and the papers have to write about them (even though the Sporting News is pissing the hell out of me) and ESPN shows their highlights toward the beginning of SportsCenter not at the end after “Did You Know”, world ice dancing highlights and a couple of ads for “Stump the Schwab”.
Oh sure they have teased me in the past and I should not get my hopes up. A prime example of this behavior was demonstrated last season. They were doing great until the Twins rolled into town for a four game set in August. Our hard fought 3 game lead became a free-fall. Strangely this season has a different feel to it (at least till the free fall). The only thing that sucks is we are playing so well and we are only four ahead of the tax cheating, dog kicking, red wine with chicken drinking, non VCR tape rewinding Twins. But the plucky little White Sox are doing their best at making me forget that the Broncos have taken every Cleveland Brown defender they could find. I think they may have been desperate when they were trying to sign Frank Minnefeild and Hanford Dixon. What they could not find Clay Matthews or Chip Banks? Look Bob Golic is always looking for work. Well I am going to enjoy it while it last.
