2. Such good people
I went to college with a couple of the Rooney kids, and they are such a nice, ego-free family.

I love that they are such good Dems., especially considering Mr. Rooney's newphew, Tom Rooney, was just sworn in a Republican.

Oh, the horror.

4. WHAT! Obama should be a Sox fan. His district was the South Side.
His house was only 25 or so blocks south of their field. Cubs are on the other side of town

5. Jesus, JVS thank you.
I must've had my teams flipped then.

The White Sox would be a perfectly appropriate team for a President.

We really dodged a bullet there.
