Wednesday, June 25
We'll be up-front. We won't be at the Rangers game Wednesday. We won't be guzzling beer and downing dogs in Arlington. We won't be waving our giant foam finger or our inflatable bat over the heads of people we don't know. Oh, sure we'll be rooting that Raffy hits one over the wall against Barry Zito, and that the Rangers will, well, win. After all, a sweep would help ye ole blue and red gain some momentum to climb out of fourth place in the American League West. Rather, we'll be screaming our heads off and eating all things not nutritious privately in front of a large television with the most devoted and insane baseball fan we know: Mom. For those, however, who are endeared with the atmosphere of the Ballpark in Arlington, the Texas Rangers take on the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. Tickets cost $5 to $55. Call 1-888-96-TEXAS.
