Perusing the archives for a special assignment, I came across one of Joe’s grey boxes (which I have yet to master.). Notice the date of the prediction. Now either Rick got lucky or Rick is that good.

“So a bold prediction for 2005:

The White Sox will win the World Series. This is the only way life could be any worse for the Cubs. And that is where you always go with this franchise. You go to wherever the maximum pain is. Five outs away from the World Series in 2003? Yes, that does hurt. The Red Sox, the Cubs’ brother in futility, winning the Series in 2004? Thank you, sir, now hit me across the back of the legs with your cane.”
