Well, a guy caught it and gave the HR ball to his kid...who happens to be a really cute kid in all Rangers gear - the blue jersey, the blue hat, everything. The kid even had a glove! So why am I giving you the Eric Nadel description of this kid's outfit? To illustrate how into this game the little guy was, obviously! And how heartbreaking it must have been when his big "sister" yanks the ball from him to throw it back onto the field! (I'd like to mention that 162+ is using the term "sister" loosely, because this chick was about 20 years older than the kid, so we're not completely sold)
|Sister? COME ON!|
Here's the live action in case you're interested:
Needless to say, when the Fox Sports Southwest cameras pan back to the kid after the throw back, he is utterly dejected. I mean...the look on his face would have made Cruella Deville want to hug him. Of course everyone's favorite in-stands reporter, Jim Knox saved the day and got the kid a ball!
|And by "favorite", we mean "unnecessary"|
|Be the guy in red. ALWAYS.|
|You think you're too cool for school? Well...you aren't.|
|They read newspapers while Josh hit. |
And that was the last time the Dallas Morning News sold so many print copies in one day.
Now, I realize that some were highly offended by this remark. But, I tend to agree. Not in the sense that there are no true baseball fans here, because there are tons and even Hamilton acknowledged that. But, definitely in the sense that football is the Metroplex's sports priority. It always will be. Texas=Football. And I love the Dallas Cowboys, so that's okay by me. I have, though, always been more of a seam head than anything. So I tend to notice when I walk into a sports bar and the Rangers are NOT on...during the season. And football insider shows are on. And that's happened many, many times. Over many different years. At many different bars.
