Just curious- am I the only Chicagoan with the song "Don't Stop Believing" still stuck in my head?

Chicago should be proud of the White Sox parade and celebration rally. Despite a quick acceleration of the parade date, preparations were near perfect as over one million crowded the streets of LaSalle to be covered with shreds of newspapers and cheer as double decker buses carried the team with families (including hot wives and girlfriends), coaches and staff. As I stood on the corner of LaSalle and Adams with tens of thousauds of my closest friends, we were not just North siders or South siders, but proud Chicagoans. I will never forget during one of the Bulls' championship celebration, listening to New York based sportswriter, Mike Lupica exclaiming something along these lines, "Big Deal, go ahead and celebrate your NBA championship, but don't call me until you celebrate a World Series championship!" Well, Mr. Lupica, Chicago did a splendid job celebrating its World Series championship. Now tell me which city has won a World Series more recently- Chicago or New York!? Which City has won a NBA championship more recently- Chicago or New York!?

There appears to be mass confusion when the White Sox Celebration Parade will take place. Well, the parade will be on Friday, not Monday. Here's a link, where you can laugh about the haphazard parade route: http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/whitesox/chi-051027soxparade,1,5544426.story?coll=chi-news-hed

I had refrained from any postings during the World Series out of fear of jinxing my boyhood team. But today, on the day of my nephew's 7th birthday, the White Sox win two games in one day and win the WORLD SERIES!! Growing up on the South Side watching Wilbur Wood, Richie Zisk, among others, I nevered even dared to dream that this day would happen. Thank you Ozzie, Kenny Willliams and a team that I enjoyed watching all season (even when a 15 game lead almost faded away). Chicago!!! South Side!!! White Sox!!

So the teams are set- the Houston Astros are coming to Chicago to face the White Sox in the World Series. Another year that the St. Louis Cardinals fall short, adding additional proof to my argument that Tony LaRussa is one of the most overrated managers in baseball. I'll will start by admitting that I don not like LaRussa and I think he is a "thug." How many great teams has this guy had in the playoffs and he has only one World Series chanmpionship. Bye, bye Tony!!

And on the Southside of town- even better!! Thanks Ozzie! I ahve plenty to write about. Let's start with a link about the apparent suicide of former SNL cast member, Charles Rocket, whom you might also remember from the classic "Dumb and Dumber." http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20051018/tv_nm/rocket_dc_3
