My personal thanks and appreciation to all White Sox fans for a terrific season in 2009. Thanks for attending, watching, listening, reading, tweeting, following and basically, offering your passion to this team. While the season was frustrating on many counts, I do love this game because even in years where a team falls short of winning a division, baseball offers such great moments: Mark Buehrle’s Perfect Game (and DW’s catch), President Obama taking the mound at the All-Star Game in St. Louis wearing a Sox jacket and the emergence of Gordon Beckham as a feel-good star of the future. Maybe it’s the way the season ended, but I wish we could start 2010 right now … I can’t wait to see Jake Peavy, MB, John Danks and Gavin Floyd (plus whomever) take the mound each day next summer.
I’d love to hear from you all about any of your own personal moments/highlights from the season and maybe what has you fired up — assuming you are — about 2010. I’d love to read your replies.
Regardless of who you cheer for or follow, you have to love the drama, excitement and tension of a one-game playoff. I’m looking forward to watching today’s game from Minneapolis. Who are you cheering for and why? And which team do you think will capture this winner-take-all contest?
Let me know your thoughts …
