They're going to the World Series.
It's strange how little a following the Sox have here downstate. Aside from some Chicago transplants, I don't know any fans in Springfield. While I lived in Chicago, I would occasionally take in a Sox game with good friend Dave "Animal" C. to have a little fun drinking beer and paying way too much for hot dogs and nachos. In fact, the only grand slam I've ever witnessed live, outside of Denny's, took place at Comiskey Park (before it was US Cellular Field).
So good on the Sox, as much under appreciated as they are here.
