One thing about karma is that it knows when it's time for you to lose. Sorry* Chicago; it was just your time.
Meanwhile, the nicest thing ever said (or thought) by the gracious and eloquent White Sox Manager, Ozzie Guillen:
(From the Strib):
“They played better than us. There’s no doubt. They pitched better. They execute better. They got big hits,” Chicago manager Ozzie Guillen said. “They really did a tremendous job.”
~AND~ Who saw this coming? (Also from the Strib):
“It’s good for baseball for a team like Tampa to win,” White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf said. “It’s too bad they had to beat us, but it’s good for the game.”
Wow. I must say that I am surprised. Do you think it's possible that there were people in the hallway who beat Ozzie and Jerry, shoved them in lockers, stole their clothes and went out to do interviews posing as them? I'm not willing to rule this out.
It was previously thought that this was the only way to keep Ozzie from making a fool of himself:
Let's just say I'm still skeptical that rational, nice words came out of this man's mouth.
In conclusion, and in response to the White Sox being knocked out of the playoffs by the Rays. . . TAKE THAT, A.J.! In your face!
