    Most White Sox fans don't believe in the Black Sox curse.

    Cub fans definitely believe in the GOAT though! :D

    I believe in the goat too, after watching the Marlins come back from a 3 games to 1 deficit. :eek: Are the Cards going to do the same thing to the Astros this year? :eek:

    I was being sarcastic. Most White Sox fan cannot afford a ticket at those prices.

    I would really like to know how these "ticket brokers" get 100's of tickets. WHAT A SCAM!

    I think they just list whatever they want and then hope to fill the orders with people trying to sell their tickets later. A short term $180 investment to turn it into ~$4000 is pretty good, White Sox fan or not.

    Either that or they're in bed with the teams.

    Funny article about one of the White Sox' former owner, Bill Veeck.

    I just voted for the Red Socks, because I felt bad they didn't have any votes. I don't really think they will win it especially now that the world series has already started and they're not in it, but you never know.

    I was lucky; we were actually under the second level, shielded from the rain. :D

    I woke up this monring and had to make sure I wasn't in some strange dream land.
    :cool:

    I got lucky at the Bears game - I had a beer shield that kept me dry (at least in my mind) until I got home and started to sober up:D

    Congrats to the SOX. I hope they sweep. It is going to be hard to get a win against Oswalt.

    I can't believe what an ordeal this roof issue has become in Houston.

    Hello, this is BASEBALL people...it's an outdoor game! :p
