As Ben notes below, the White Sox are in their second World Series of Mr. Collins’ lifetime. Since there's a little Dick Bremer in all of us, I’m guessing that most Twins fans are disheartened by this development...some might even say jealous.
Personally however, I welcome it. The Sox are stuck playing second fiddle in their own city to the suddenly not-so-lovable losers on the snobbier North Side, the Yankees/Red Sox thing is now cliché and the Angels won it all just three years ago (and I will never forgive them for the Rally Monkey or the Thunder Sticks).
It seems like when I openly pander for comments I am often shut out, so I won’t ask for your opinion on this. I wouldn’t mind if you told me though...
