AND THE ROBERT TAYLOR HOMES WERE THREE YEARS FROM COMPLETION: One helpful Primate lists some things that were true the last time a Chicago team played in the World Series:
  • There was still one Civil War vet alive.
  • The tallest building in Chicago was just a bit over 600 feet, the Chicago Board of Trade building
  • Bob Dylan had just begun his freshman year at University of Minnesota.
  • The teamsters were run by Jimmy Hoffa.
  • No one had heard of the phrase "serial killer."
  • Only 13 major leaguers had ever hit 300 homers.
  • The name of Chicago's mayor was Richard Daley.

Alright, people, White Sox v. Astros -- who ya got? (Do you care?)
