At the top of the heap, and still having criticism heaped on

Tue 20 Sep 2005, 09:33 AM

No, for once I am not talking about Notes/Domino and its tendency to be #1 in its category (whichever one) and still attract abuse and criticism from the media.  Today, I am talking about the Chicago White Sox.  I am duty bound to hate and revile the White Sox almost as much as I hate and revile the Yankees (and for nostalgia's sake, the Atlanta Braves), but nonetheless...

Imagine having the best record in the American League, the second best in MLB, and still hearing constantly how lackluster and pathetic you are.  I didn't follow baseball much this year, but if Cleveland has almost made up a 15 game deficit since August 1 against Chicago, and they STILL have the best record in the American League, you have to be a but frightened about how good they were before August 1.

But does anybody care?  Nope.  "What have you done for us lately?", they ask.  Sure, I understand momentum and all that, but being on top of the heap should be more fun than that.  So, for a brief moment, I feel sorry for Chicago.  Then I think how much sorrier I plan on feeling for them after we take over first place, and I grin.

The way they carried on after the walk off homer last night, you would have thought that they won the World Series.
