In case you haven’t heard Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez officially retired as a player after 21 years in the MLB.  I think it was fitting that he announced his retirement in Arlington.  According, to an article  in the Dallas Morning News there is as strong possibility that Pudge will join the Rangers organization in some capacity.

 

My Favorite Teams

My favorite professional teams are the Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars.

Rangers are headed to the World Series!

I’ve been a Texas Rangers fan for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Tarrant county they were the team to watch. Also, my Granddaddy liked the Rangers.

Guess I discovered the Mavericks in middles school. Guess I became a because of location. They also had several of my my favorite players for a while.

At the time, the Minnesota North Star’s decision to relocate to North Texas seemed like a strange move at the time. Like many in Texas I was introduced to hockey through the Stars.

I also follow several college teams as well. Of course, I like my alma mater, Hardin-Simmons. HSU has done pretty well since dropping down to D3 in the 1990′s.

The Big Guy is both an Aggie (Texas A&M) and Gator (University of Florida) so I’ve been assimilated. It should be interesting this year with A&M moving into the SEC.

Finally, growing up in Ft Worth, Texas I’ve always liked the TCU Horned Frogs.  Spent my preschool years tagging along with my mom. She was a graduate student.

Until Next Year

Rangers are headed to the World Series!

Baseball season has ended for the year. The Cardinal’s won in it in the  7th game. The Cards are a good team and deserved to win all.

As a life long Ranger’s fan the past two years have been amazing.   I never imagined the Rangers would make it to a World Series much less two years in a row.

For those who continue to dismiss the Rangers as a group of undeserving misfits who got lucky, it is time to reconsider.  Maybe the Rangers got lucky but they also worked very hard.  Maybe they don’t have a team full of overpaid all-stars, instead they are a team that plays together.

Thank you Rangers for a great run.  It was the best year yet. Let’s try it again next year.

Back to Back, Baby!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve probably heard that the Texas Rangers are headed to the World Series for the second year in a row.

Oh, yeah I the Rangers are playing the St. Louis Cardinals. I like the Cardinals and usually want them to win. However, I’m a Rangers fan this time I won’t be pulling for the Cards.
