Indeed. If you are a Sox fan. The Astros don't seem to be able to put it together.


"During the contest trial, the Coleman team presented evidence of a further 6500 absentees that it felt deserved to be included under the process that had produced the prior 933 [submitted by Franken, rk]. The three judges finally defined what constituted a 'legal' absentee ballot. Countable ballots, for instance, had to contain the signature of the voter, complete registration information, and proper witness credentials.

But the panel only applied the standards going forward, severely reducing the universe of additional basentees the Coleman team could hope to have included. In the end, the three judges allowed about 350 additional absentees to be counted. The panel also did nothing about the hundreds, possibly thousands, of absentees that have already been legally included, yet are now 'illegal' according to the panel's own ex-post definition."

Good, though I'm not really against the Astro's; I'm just still bitter. tongue.gif

I actually do hope for the White Sox to win, because of the history of the team. Hasn't their team not won a series longer than the Red Sox? (Good luck diagramming that sentence--I'd try to reword it but I'm too tired.)

NOW they are. They last won in '17, I believe. Of course they should have won in '19.....

It's all over. The ChiSox are World Champions!

And you know what? Good for them. I'm glad. Not since 1917 have the White Sox won it all, a predicament that until last year I strongly sympathized/identified with. If we couldn't do it again this year, then at least they could.

It's a happy day in old Chicagger. Chicahgger. Whatever. biggrin.gif
