The amazing thing is, someone has to win this

So, the Houston Astros vs. my Chicago White Sox, for the whole mess. The team that's never won a World Series in 43 years against the team that hasn't won won in 88 years. A team I have nothing against and a team I love like no other.

Should be a good series; I'd love to be more confident that our great pitching can beat their great pitching, but I'm way too terrified for that. I think we've got a hell of a chance, but even thinking that makes my stomach hurt. How do Yankee fans deal with winning all the time? It's far more nerve-wracking than losing. As with so many other aspects of life, resignation is so much easier than hope.

I hope none of our outfielders blow out their legs on that hill they have. Bring it on, Houston.
