  2005 World Series by Baseball Almanac
2005 will always be remembered as "The year of redemption in the Windy City." That was the season in which the Chicago White Sox shocked the baseball world after winning the American League pennant en route to their first World Series since 1959.
In retrospect, Chicago's only regret of the 2005 season was that the clinching victories for the American League Central, the Division Series, the American League Championship Series and the World Series came while on the road in Detroit, Boston, Anaheim and Houston, respectively.
The 2005 Chicago White Sox were 6-0 on the road in the postseason, the second best road record in a single postseason behind the 1996 New York Yankees, who were 8-0.

  2005 World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Roger Clemens recorded his shortest World Series start, leaving after the second inning with 53 pitches including 35 for strikes, due to a sore hamstring that he had previously injured (and caused him to miss his last regular season start) as the loss went to Wandy Rodríguez.
This was the first World Series won by a team from the Central Division of either league since the league realignment prior to the 1994 season.
This was the 19th World Series to end in a four-game sweep, and the second consecutive Series (and 12th overall) in which the AL team swept the NL team.

 2005 World Series Preview
The lack of World Series experience is not just with the fans of both teams as only a handful of players on both teams have ever played on baseball grandest stage.
For fans of true baseball this World Series will be a treat, home runs will happen but they won't be the sole focus as taking the extra base getting down the sac bunt and advancing runners with outs will be the true offensive weapons, like it was meant to be.
Look for this series to be close through out as runs will be a premium, but in the end it will come down to Game 7 as the White Sox end their 88-year drought on suicide squeeze, as Mark Buhrele is named Series MVP.

 Houston's Clear Thinkers: 2005 World Series Preview
< Sociological implications of the 2005 World Series
The Stros have run up a 7-3 playoff record while engaging in two pressure-packed series with the Braves and then the Cardinals, while the Sox are 7-1 in the playoffs after polishing off the defending World Series champion Red Sox and then the Yankee-killing Angels in surprisingly easy fashion.
This series is likely to be decided by small miscues, which are often unnoticeable over a long season, but are utterly unpredictable in a short series.

 World champs! Sox sweep series
HOUSTON-- The Chicago White Sox are World Series champions again at last, and yet another epic streak of futility is not just wiped away but swept away.
Dye, the Series MVP, swung and missed Lidge's next pitch, took a ball, then grounded a single up the middle, clapping his hands as he left the plate.
Houston was 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position on the night and 10-for-48 (.208) in the Series, and Lidge fell to 0-2 in the Series and 0-3 in the postseason.

If the World Series Collector's Editions were produced by Steven Spielberg or Peter Jackson instead of Major League Baseball and AandE, the brand-new "Chicago White Sox 2005 World Series Collector's Edition" would be the second in a historic and sentimental trilogy.
Every serious baseball fan knows the legendary three teams with the longest World Series Championship droughts: The Chicago Cubs, who last won a series in 1908; the Chicago White Sox, who, before 2005, hadn't won since 1917; and the Boston Red Sox, who, prior to 2004, hadn't earned a title since 1918.

This year's World Series of Poker Main Event was definitely one for the record books.
Mortensen played an aggressive and fearless game to take title, but he also had lady luck on his side; his victory hand, which was followed by a fist pumping celebration, saw him catch a 9 on the river to make a 9-K straight, outdrawing Dewey Tomko’s favoured Pocket Rockets.

 2005 World Series of Poker
The great number of 5619 entrants and the high buy-in stake of $10,000 for each participant made 2005 World Series of Poker the largest poker tournament in the history of WSOP.
There were 5661 registered players, but some of them didn't play for several reasons - 13 qualifiers had their buy-in "lost in transit", 10 online qualifiers were not permitted to play as it emerged they were underage, 2 online qualifiers died before the event started - so only 5,619 played.
The 2005 WSOP champion was Joseph Hachem who won the record breaking cash prize of 7 500 000 dollars plus gold bracelet that is known to be the most important prize for all poker players.

 The 2005 World Series: Pardon the pitching - Silver Chips Online
The 2005 World Series is set, and this fall baseball will award its championship trophy to either the American League's Chicago White Sox or the National League's Houston Astros.
Although I expect Clemens to give the Astros the series lead after the opener, the White Sox pitching is too good to lose this series.
In seven World Series starts, Clemens is 3-0 with a 1.90 ERA, and Oswalt won two games in the National League Championship Series (NLCS) on his way to winning the MVP of the series.

 DVD Verdict Review - World Series 2005: Chicago White Sox
Without a doubt, most of the 2005 baseball season was dominated by whether some of the biggest names in the sport were guilty of jabbing steroid needles into their buttocks.
Maybe the baseball world was dismissive of any legitimate dramas, after the Boston Red Sox' dramatic win over the New York Yankees in the 2004 playoffs before their first World Series title in 86 years.
The feature is similar to other World Series films in previous years, using behind the scenes footage with players who wear microphones during the games.
