1917 was a long time ago.


88 years is of course a long time to go without a championship (I know this, my team is at 97 year and counting). Yet for some reason that length of time doesn't always sink in. So in case it hasn't quite hit you how long it had been since the White Sox last won the chamionship, think of it this way:

In 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution took place. The Soviet Empire rose and fell and then another 15 years passed in between Sox' championships.


And for the Cubs, it's been almost a decade longer...
