The State of Baseball in North Texas

Today I watched the Los Angeles Angels defeat the Texas Rangers. This tends to happen when you strand 11 men on base over the course of 9 innings. I observed several things:
-They have changed the parking lot signs to no longer have Texas Heroes on them. When did this happen? Back when it became Ameriquest? Shame on whoever made that decision. I would rather park in the Sam Houston lot than Parking Lot D.
-At what point do you begin to think that you do not have to listen to the 3rd base coach? If he sends you home, you run home, no matter what your paycheck is, and especially when you are 3 runs behind.
-Parking cost me more than my ticket. This should not be.
-An afternoon at the Ballpark is definitely better than one at the office.

One of my friends auditioned and was selected to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" today during the 7th inning stretch, so that's what took me out there today. It was so fun to watch her sing from the top of the dugout!

I have loved this ballclub since I was old enough to understand what the game was, but I may be searching for a new Team to cheer for, maybe from the southern part of the state. Rangers, you are on notice.


  1. It's all about the Red Sox Nations baby- join it, love it, see a few wins for once!

  2. I know you will ignore the above comment because you are "True Texan"... right?

  3. Yes, I'll at least keep it in the state. :)

  4. ooh! i LOVE the new look! way cute


  5. cool new blog stuff

    although like you i was raised as a ranger fan, i definitely became a huge stros fan while living in houston. the ballpark is great, but i have to admit minute maid park (is it still called that?) is really great. what could the difference be? oh yeah, WINS.

    go ASTROS!
