The streakbuster

Last year at this time, I was in Norwich, Conn., listening to every Red Sawx fan cackle when they beat my Cardinals for their first World Series win since 1918.

This year, I am in Chicago where the White Sox -- yes, the Grinders, Pale Hose, South Siders, whatever -- have won the American League pennant. Is that Hell freezing over? Collective Cubs fans' hearts dropping into their stomachs?


Now, the Cardinals are down three games to one and it looks like the White Sox will meet Houston in their first World Series appearance since 1959.

They are four wins from exorcising the ghosts of 1917 -- the last time Chicago has seen a World Series winner.

Think it's going to happen? Tell me what you think. I'd like to know.
