Today in White Sox History: October 31

No fun allowed: The White Sox got this World Series cover, but nothing after they actually won it all.


2005 — As the White Sox were winning their first championship in 88 years, Sports Illustrated put Scott Podsednik and his winning home run from the second game on the cover. The long caption read, “World Series. In A Match Up Of Two Title Hungry Teams, The White Sox Struck First, Dramatically Downing The Astros In Games 1 And 2.”

The magazine then basically ignored the White Sox winning the Series by only putting a small circle shot of the team celebrating in the corner of the following week’s cover, breaking a long standing tradition. The cover that week was Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as the magazine previewed a regular season NFL game.
