Baseball might be only my third favorite sport, but I love the Texas Rangers. I love the history, even though I wasn’t around for much of it, but I also love the recent history, which I have witnessed every moment of. I love having Nolan Ryan as a member of the organization, even if he is just a mascot. I love having a young, hip GM in Jon Daniels. I LOVE Ron Washington. But I do not love this year.
As we near Christmas Day (5 days away!) NFL Teams are asking Santa for plenty this year. The Cowboys, Bears, and Steelers are asking for a playoff miracle. The Jets are hoping McElroy is the QB they have been hoping for (and I hope along with Tim Tebow that he gets a shot elsewhere, and rumor is they’re shopping him and Sanchez). Matt Ryan and the Falcons are hoping to get that elusive first playoff win, as is Matt Schaub (TJ Yates won the Texans’ playoff game last year).
