Hard-Core Cubs Fan Dies After Sox Win Pennant: Two weeks ago, 68-year old Irene Egan conceded to her son that she knew the Sox were doing well. "She's like, 'If them damn Sox go to the World Series, it will be the death of me,'" Allen Grove said. One week later, the Sox did, indeed, seal their first trip to baseball's Fall classic in 46 years. Two days after that, the 68-year-old lifelong Cub fan died.
