    Hey Rangers Fans, Cheer Up!

    Not him. Not now.​Last time I was out at Rangers Ballpark - which was Wednesday - it was a warm-n-fuzzy joint. Texas was winning three in a row from the Twins, fans were drinking "Blue Light Special" $4 beer. The Rangers were comfortably in first place. All seemed well. But now? Booing. Are ... More >>
