2005 World Series Champions

If you are reading this, chances are that you remember when the White Sox won the World Series in 2005. It was a magical run that saw the team have the most historic run in team history. They were getting close to a century without a World Series title but they came together and got it done. Most fanbases don’t have a memory like that. For that reason, White Sox fans should be thankful.

It hasn’t been easy ever since, but fans of the team will always have that great memory. Only the St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, Kansas City Royals, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros,  and Washington Nationals have won the World Series since the White Sox won. It is hard to win it all and White Sox fans have a memory of their team doing it. That is something to be proud of.

They can also be thankful for the players and coaches that made this possible. Ozzie Guillen was the leader but guys like Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski, Joe Crede, Mark Buehrle, and Scott Podsednik amongst others made it happen. Every member of that team is a legend on the South Side and we are thankful for all they did for this organization.
