6. I hope the White Sox win
Hey, at least the team that beat Boston went, not Analheim.

Enjoy the series, I just wish my Dad had lived to see the Red Sox nation win in 2004.

4. 'Stros in 7.
Their pitching is, if possible, better than the ChiSox.

It's a win-win for any outside observer. You have Houston--a team that's NEVER been to the Series, and the ChiSox--a team that hasn't won since what? 1908?

18. Just remember, this isn't about George & Babs -- it's BAGS & BIGGIO
Don't hate the Astros because of the Bushes. They don't own the team -- they just live here (ugh) when they aren't summering in Kennebunkport. I wish the cameras would stay off of them. I was at the Saturday and Monday night games -- and believe me, NOBODY in that park sees them or gives a shit about them.

The 'Stros deserve this one. Coming back from a 15-30 record to go the World Series!!

I don't know if you've heard about Roger Clemens' mother. She died recently and on the day of her death told Roger the Astros would go to the World Series. Then she said "Shoeless Joe". Then she told told him the Astros would win 10-2. The Astros won that night ... 10-2. The 'Stros are going to the Series and are playing the White Sox (Shoeless Joe). Pretty weird, huh?

5. Yes they are.
Clemens pitching in Game 1. For purists, this will be a great Fall Classic; dominant pitching, low scoring, manufacturing a run, etc.

Congratulations to the White Sox and their fans on their first WS in a long time also.

(Here's hoping the Texas haters can keep their bile on a leash.)

14. For the first time in my life, I am rooting for the American League team.
Well, last year, I sorta rooted for Boston.

As a New York Mets fan, I certainly was happy when Boston beat the Yankees last year, even if I had to suffer through the smarmy politicing of that right-wing bastard nutcase Schilling.

Go SOX!
