for the second year in a row, a SOX team has risen into baseball infamy!

Ladies & Gentleman – I present the World Champion


*** Socks Yarn Extravaganza ***


CHELEE! Come on DOWN!!!

In what was even more nerve wracking than a 5 hit inning, the last game of the World Series between the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros, like the night before, dragged ON & ON & ON! Luckily for me, I’d decided the SOX needed More Good Luck than what the gnarly hat I was wearing vibed so I broke out the big guns…


Grabbing some forgotten stashed Black & White Regia, I started a Victory Sock in Inning One. What you see here on Missy Monkey’s Head is the entire game’s worth, knitting as fast as I could because I could not bear to watch! Damn, those #1 needles are small…

I leave you this HAPPY MORNING! with

Grinder Baseball Rule #102:
“Crying in Baseball’s OK as long as champagne hurts your eyes!”

    Happy Dance! (Even tho I played for but didn’t win your prize!) The Sox (double entendre intended) deserve to win! Chicago deserves to Win! What a party!

  2. AmyH says:

    Surprising to me (I guessed White Sox, 6-4) as the games leading into the series and prior to this last game were fairly high scoring. As Hub says, “It doesn’t matter if the score is 1-0 or 15-0, they still won.” GO SOX!!!!!!!!
    And that’s saying a lot because we’re third generation NYY fans!
    Congrats Chelee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You should check out my blog (Purls & Pugs) to find out the *real* reason why the Sox won…I had a lightbulb moment this morning and decided that it needed to be published!

    However they did it, Yippee!!!! Go Sox!!!

    Awwww, I always felt bad about Toronto beating them in the AL championships in 1993, hee. Good on ya, Chicago!!!!

  7. Gwen says:

    Congratulations. Though I’m not really certain ANYTHING can compare to the Red Sox’ win over the Yankees in the pennant race last year, and the subsequent Championship win, as a Boston Red Sox fan, I understand your joy! My family was rooting for the Astros, so long as the Rocket was healthy, but not to be. I’m still not sure I forgive him for deserting Boston. Enjoy the victory!
