I can't let the day pass without commenting on something truly timeless:
The Chicago White Sox have won the 2005 World Series!
As a native Chicagoan and congenitally athletics-minded individual, I have been a White Sox fan since childhood. This is a dream come true. What makes it even sweeter is that this team has played the right way and won the championship in a really entertaining, inspiring, and edifying fashion. They have fought hard all season long for this achievement, without famed superstars or big egos, and they have stuck together as a true team.
They truly deserve our respect and congratulations, and I hereby offer them to all involved. Cheers!
