The 2006 season is well underway, and already the Sox have us on the edge of our seats. After kind of a shaky start, it seems they are finally gaining some momentum. I was sure the Apocolypse was upon us with the Tigers and the Brewers sitting undefeated at the top of their respective divisions at the end of the first week, and then I remembered it was only the FIRST WEEK!! Then I opened another beer and relaxed. It’s a long time until the Fall Classic….
As I sit and muse over the first several days of the season, I remember that in years past, teams hot out of the box usually fade by the All Star break, and the steady gainers usually win out in the end. I think our Sox are in the latter category, and are slowly building to that team we saw at the end of last season, blitzing their last few games and burning through the playoffs and the Series. It’s a long season, folks, and it may be a bumpy ride at times, but I wouldn’t miss it for the world!!
Finally, the 2006 season is here. Last night’s game was great (except for the almost three hour rain delay.) It was great to watch the drubbing the Sox handed to the Tribe. I must admit it was a little strange not to see Rowand, Thomas, and others not even on the roster anymore. But, alas, baseball’s faces change, but they’re still our Sox!!
I have set up a chat board for White Sox fans. Drop by and check it out. It’s free, and it’s a great place to vent. Visit it at Pale Hose Nation . I look forward to seeing you there and chatting with you.
