White Sox Curse
As you may have gathered from all the songs about math and squids and cyborgs, I’m not much of a sports guy. But even a Frito-eating benchwarmer like me feels a little tingle in the ol’ rosin bag when I think about the possibility that this may be the year the White Sox finally break the curse. Of course you all remember the Black Sox scandal of 1919 in which “Shoeless” Joe Jackson and his band of player-haters got caught throwing the world series and were imprisoned in the Phantom Zone by none other than commissioner of baseball Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Since that dark day, the White Sox have never won the world series. Or something. Actually, I’m not too clear on the facts because I tend to skim when I read, and I haven’t really read much about this anyway. Still, in case you missed it the first time around, here is my song about that very subject: Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Devoted fans please note this is not a new song, it is just newly apropos, and I post it here just so the other kids can catch up.
