(Speaking of Pujols, the best 'Good Teammate' story of the weak, as recounted by Buster Olney:
On the flight from Houston to St. Louis, after Pujols' stunning home run in Game 5, the pilot -- cued by some member of the team, in all likelihood -- announced that if you looked out the left side of the airplane you would see Pujols' home run zooming past.
I guess that's how you avoid the Dead Man Walking game. "If you look underneath the cab, you can see Mookie's grounder still rolling." Doesn't quite have the same ring...)
Final thought: Was it really neccesary for Fox to do a whole 'nother "cursed franchise" montage pregame? Maybe Shaughnessy has a Black Sox book coming out that he needs to peddle...Of course it does allow RSN to remind ourselves that we are still the champs, for another few days at least.
