A year later and every bit as sweet

It was a year ago …

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
I just pissed myself.

 

And although this season didn't end as we'd have liked, let's consider the words of Jorge Luis Borges, "To fall in love is to create a religion that has a fallible god." …

Susan:
Togethah forevah! Happy Anniversary.

hmm... check out Adam's post from one year ago....

"I'm a White Sox fan, do you think there's a chance we'll win one?"

Congratulations to you Adam. And Happy anniversary to Red Sox Nation of the best morning after EVER!!!!

Here's one of the posted comments from one year ago today- hit that link and scroll down a few inches:

Congratulations. I'm a White Sox fan, does this mean we have a chance to actually win some day, too?

Happy adversity, er, anniversary, Soxaholix. Don't get divorced.

"Almost 80% of couples who were 'very unhappy' in their marriages and agreed not to divorce described themselves as 'happy' five years later, a new study finds. Of those who divorced, only half were 'happy' five years later."

The preceding research published in The Wall Street Journal is a timely reminder that people (specifically baseball GM's named Theo Epstein) who work out their marital problems (specifically with those sur-named Lucchino) end up happier than those who walk out.

For another timely reminder, witness the pyramid of rediscovered "newlywed bliss" that is Steinbastard, Torre, and King Cashman.

Salut, Soxaholix

Sincerely,

Babe Silverstein

Had myself a shot of Balvenie at the appropriate time. 2004 was the best birthday present ever.

Thanks to the champagne and Jameson, I don't remember it like it was yesterday.

Dwight:

I suggest an LG diez "Lusitano" w/ the next Balvenie.

If you live in(near) Boston, Peretti's has moderate prices, on Park Sq. just down from the four seasons.

Hey, the red sox can't win every year. What's important here is the yankees still have not won it all in this century. woo-hoo!

Congrats to the White Sox fans alurking.

Love for the Red Sox is true and will last forever so quit speaking of divorces!

Ah, Borges... way to dig up a great blind, argentine poet/philosoher! His book Labyrinths is truly reading pleasure

Thanks for the link to the wonderful anniversary HB. In honor of all you White Sox fans out there, I've changed my monicker and dug up a few immortal words from your very own Carl Sandburg:

"Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be
alive and coarse and strong and cunning.
Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on job, here is a tall
bold slugger set vivid against the little soft cities;
Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning as a savage pitted
against the Astros,
Guillen,
Konerko,
Podsednik
Dye"

(actually, the original said "against the wilderness bareheaded, shoveling, wrecking, planning)

Congratulations White Sox fans. Enjoy your celebration.

Sandberg was a Cubs fan. But a nice thought anyway.

Just kidding, BTW. It's just that every last Cub fan I know right now has jumped on the White Sox bandwagon bigtime. I thought those two teams hated each other? (And I know it's SandBURG. I just got a little Ryne on the brain.)

I thought the White Sox should have given Steve Bartman season tickets for life to prove that they have the classy organization in town and to shame the Cubs into admitting that he was not responsible for their loss. Blaming a fan when the team blows it is abhorrent -- especially when the poor guy is practically ridden out of town on a rail!

Now I'm waiting for Ryne Sandberg's biography of Lincoln. Why not? Everybody else has written one, including Doris Kearns Goodwin now I see.

Such fond memories. Let's win another one. Check out my site.

Ah, Steve Bartman ...

When Uribe went into the stands at Houston for the penultimate out, the fans could have batted the ball away with no penalty. Once a ball is over the wall, no interference call is in order.

When Bartman (and many others) interfered with the ball at Wrigley Field, the various commentators in town commented, "No one should criticize him, that's the natural reaction of a fan." Ha. The week before, during Game 4 of the ALDS at Fenway against Oakland, the same play happened, and the Red Sox fans all scrambled to get out of the way of the Red Sox's fielder, who caught the ball in the stands. It may be the natural reaction of a tourist, but a fan sitting in the first couple of rows should know what's going on and act accordingly.
