Sox are Inn!

You can put it on the boarrrrrrrddddd, yes!  The Chicago White Sox have clinched the playoffs in the final spot.  The Chicago White Sox are headed to the playoffs for the first time since winning the 2005 World Series after beating the Minnesota Twins 1-0 behind the bat of Jim Thome and the left arm of John Danks.

I personally didn't think they could pull it; but they did in a nail-biting fashion.  The city was filled with disgusted Cub fans; but hey let Chicago celebrate together for once.

The Sox had to work overtime, but in Game No. 163 of the 162-game regular season, they pulled out a 1-0 victory against the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central tiebreaker, not only advancing to the AL Division Series against Tampa Bay beginning Thursday, but giving Chicago baseball fans the chance to enjoy both their teams in the postseason for the first time since 1906.

The Sox are headed to the postseason for the ninth time in their history, and before the first pitch in the first game against Tampa Bay has been thrown, Reinsdorf is satisfied, that Jerry "I own all Chicago sport" Reinsdorf.  Congratulations to the Sox - now let's make it happen.

Chicago Funnies
ps: personally I'm going for the Cubs or Dodgers.
