14 hours later, and I still have a huge smile on my face. It's so close you can almost taste it. You can imagine what that release will be like. Almost.
We're still White Sox fans, however. We know that nothing is over until it's freakin' over. I'll be just as nervous for tonight's game as I was for game 1, and I'll probably be predicting doom should the Sox fail to sweep.
One thing I haven't heard anyone bring up about last night was how all of our walks effected the Houston pitching staff. Phil Garner made a double switch when he brought in Brad Lidge so that he would be able to pitch 2.1 innings without the pitchers spot coming up. Thanks to all of the free passed handed out by Sox pitchers, Lidge was only out there for 1.1 innings. Lidge would have gone at least 2.1 in an AL park.
