The Champions of the American League - 2005

I was nine MONTHS old the last time a team from Chicago played in the World Series, when the Sox lost in 6 to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Not living in Chicago allows me the pleasure (and agony) of rooting for both the Cubs and the Sox, but between these two teams it has been like walking on hot coals watching them try, and fail, to get to the Series.
I couldn't watch the game until the 8th inning tonight from sheer nerves, as I remember the Cubs 5th game LCS collapse two years ago. It is only now, an hour after the last out, that I have enough composure to even write this.
I know I owe y'all a couple of posts, but it's just going to have to wait.
