White Sox End Curse, Win Series

Baseball has its second curse-ending World Series in a row in another sweep. This year's newly-unjinxed champs are the Chicago White Sox, who had not won a championship since the unmasking of the most notorious gambling scandal of all professional sports in 1919:

It was the third title for the White Sox, following wins in 1906 and 1917. And it was the first since "Shoeless" Joe Jackson and the "Black Sox" threw the 1919 Series against Cincinnati.

In the Windy City, where the Cubs have long been king, Chicago's South Side team for once trumped its North Side rival, no small feat for the Sox.

Congratulations to the White Sox for an excellent season and decades of perseverance. When the Cubs win the World Series, however, we will all be consulting the Book of Revelation to start looking for the signs of the impending Apocalypse.
