Twins Fan Starting To Think It Might Actually Be the White Sox's Year

Twins fan Aaron Kehl during happier times
MOUND, MN - Twins fan Aaron Kehl, 23, revealed to friends this week that he's starting to think that, as much as it kills him to admit it, 2005 might actually be the Chicago White Sox's year. "As much as I hate to say it," Kehl told fellow Twins fans Friday, "it's looking like the White Sox could end up taking the Central this year." The Twins were in third place at press time, 14 games behind the White Sox and eight games behind the wild card-leading Cleveland Indians.

"Man, I hate the White Sox," Kehl added.

"Yeah, the rest of us pretty much realized after the All-Star break when the Twins came out flat that it probably wasn't going to happen this year," said Kehl's friend and roommate Nick Stoltzenberg, who attended several Twins games with Kehl this season. "Aaron never was willing to concede that the White Sox were going to make the playoffs, though. Not until this week. I still sort of can't believe he said it. Hell, I still sort of can't believe that the freaking White Sox are going to the playoffs."

"Man, we finally showed those Twins who's better. Now we're going to win the World Series for sure," said White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko, who was on the 2000 White Sox team that won the Central with the best record in the American League and was promptly swept out of the playoffs by the wild card Seattle Mariners.
