Go SOX!!

I'm a Mets fan, but watching the White Sox play in the postseason, I've come to appreciate their style. I'm hoping that they do well in the World Series (apparently, I'm not alone):

The Sox have connected with Hispanic fans since the South Side became home to Latin American immigrants and baseball icons. But this Sox team has generated new fervor because of its playoff run and public face, a Venezuelan skipper who can talk strategy and spew expletives in two languages.

The Sox have capitalized on the popularity of Ozzie Guillen, their current manager and former shortstop, by reviving Spanish-language radio broadcasts and forming a Hispanic advisory committee to connect with a group that represents 80 percent of the Chicago area's growth since 2000.
