10/27/2005: The Curse is 'Broken'...
The White SOX have swept the Astros and WON the World series in a 4 Game sweep!!! (A 1-Zip game winning score.)
The Curse of Shoe-Less Joe Jackson is Broken. Chicago is a Happy Town (and Fie on them *Texans* - wink) and have the first World Series win in 88 years.
This a Historic Baseball Moment for the Record books. Congrats to the Chicago White Sox!!!
Update: As a statistical footnote. On the third game in the extra innings, the camera caught a shot of Roland Hemond (a retired former White Sox General manager kissing his wife at 12:01 am.
Roland was interviewed on WSCR - sports radio Chicago - and asked about the kiss. He told the announcer that the game ahd rolled over into the 26th and so at 12:01 it was his birthday - and his wife kissed him.
But, he noted, that since the White Sox had a chance to win the game that night, he'd be the only Former General manager who's team won a World Series in a 4 game sweep, ending an 88 year old Curse, in TWO games won on his birthday.
TOO FUNNIE!! Happy Birthday to Roland Hemond.
