High and outside

Nice work, White Sox. It's fun to live in Chicago when teams are winning championships. I should know; the NBA's Bulls won their six titles during my tenure in the Windy City.

Not counting a summer I spent in the South Loop, I lived on the South Side all ten years of my stay in Chicago, and part of me fancied myself a fan of the White Sox, one of the great South Side institutions. The Cubs always seemed so, well, bourgeois. So I occasionally hopped on the Dan Ryan El for nine innings at Comiskey Park, which is now named for a wireless telephone company.

But to tell you the truth, I don't really care about baseball.
