Yeah that was great moment. It was Robin Ventura's ass that got beat. Before every game they show video highlights of great Ranger plays, that one is always in there and get's the biggest cheers from the fans! It always makes me feel like we are a bunch of dumb rednecks for cheering at it, but it is a great baseball moment! ha

Either way, the Rangers are a very classy organization. And the one thing they have that most other teams don't, is a true spirit of team. There is not one person on that team that makes it about himself. These guys truly love each other and play as one unit. Gotta give credit where it's due Shecky!
Yup. I gained a ton of respect for them when they clinched their division last year and had cider instead of champagne since one of their players was a recovering alcoholic...

Straight class there.

And what's wrong with cocaine? In all seriousness, that was a while ago, and lots of people used to do coke.

Had to be Josh Hamilton. That dude is great, but nearly missed the biggies because of his past addictions. I think he's replaced that with family and religion. Good dude, likely to stay a great ball player for a long time if he stays healthy.

Yup it was Hamilton. He had some serious issues in the past.

Hey, it's a big time Ranger moment. And for a team with our history, we don't have many "unfogettable" moments!

haha that's funny!

Nolan is really cool guy. The big sports radio station here in Dallas has him on all the time. He is really funny. He's just a good ole country boy and has no problems making fun of himself for it. Big ole country boy or not, the man knows his baseball and he could murder the pope and this town wouldn't convict him!

But his spot on that Ace Hardware commercial is dumb.
