The Sox in their long history have a lifetime .506 winning percentage which is something to be proud of as a fan but it's still hard to believe that the Sox have never made the post-season 2 years in a row.
Greatful for 2005 as well. Thank God for the invention of DVD's and the pause/replay button. After a crap game I toss in an inning or two of 2005 magic to salve the wound.
Yup, one dream realized, still looking for the back to back repeats as well. Odds are getting better with the advent of the extra WC play in, so could happen before you hit 100.
