Song Honors White Sox Baseball Season

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chicago White Sox fans had to wait 88 years to celebrate a world championship, but it didn’t take nearly as long for two fans of the team to write a jingle in honor of it.

Chicago-based musicians Kim Char Meredith and Darlyne Cain says they wrote and recorded their song salute, “88 Years” just a few hours after the White Sox triumph last week and it began playing on Chicago radio stations immediately.

Lyrics to the two-minute poppy tune include Game Three: Five runs in the fifth/ And way too many innings/ A zillion pitches later/ Blum hits the winning.

Meredith says they wanted to make the song after getting “sucked up” in the city’s frenzy during the White Sox playoff run.

Besides “88 Years” being played on the airwaves, Meredith and Cain have tried getting the song to the White Sox players and coach Ozzie Guillen, but have yet to be successful.

Still, Meredith says they will keep trying adding, “they would love it.”
