  1. At 0:13, they mentioned the White Sox’s two world championships (at that point), namely 1906 and ’17. The Sox did win it all in 2005, sweeping the Astros. I’m not a Cub fan (my favorite team is not important), but I’d dearly love to see them win a World Series before much longer, not having won one since 1908. If and when they make the postseason, again, I’ll be pulling for them all the way. I liked how Terri said she remembered the White Sox world championships.

  2. You “know virtually nothing about Terri Hemmert”? Well, let’s see … At age 68, she’s still on ‘XRT just about every day, after making her debut there 43 years ago. She’s from Piqua, Ohio. Has a B.A. in speech. Teaches classes in radio, and in music history. In 2010, Pres. Obama invited her to the White House as he awarded the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song to Paul McCartney. Terri is a huge Beatles fan, is considered an expert on them, and is the longtime host of a weekly show featuring their music. In fact, she says — only half-jokingly — that she originally got into radio because she figured it might allow her to meet the Beatles! I hope this helps.
