"It's All Just One Big Happiness": Meet Ian Kinsler's Dad, Howard, Who Seems Awful Swell
Those following along with our World Series open threads -- and, programming note, Sam's Game Six'er opens at around 6 -- know by now that my 8-year-old's favorite present-day Texas Ranger is Ian Kinsler, who he stuck with even during that awful 1-fer mid-summer slump. But after the jump, courtesy the Major League Baseball Players Association, meet Ian's biggest fan: his father, Howard, featured with his boy in yet another installment in that behind-the-scenes series that introduced us to Derek Holland's girlfriend and Mike Na-po-li!'s mom. Sent by a Friend of Unfair Park, who throws in this for the bonus sports cry.
