The Rangers sucked under Bush and his policies (anyone remember Sammy Sosa?). As matter of fact, they went belly up and had to be bailed out by the MLB until Nolan Ryan and a group of out-of-state investors took over. They're still struggling to pay off their bad debts from past years of owner abuse and poor leadership. One could argue that the Rangers are a microcosm of the Bush administration's effect on the country as a whole. Things didn't get better for the Rangers until Bush and his cronies were out of the picture but it took some time to heal. (still healing to a great extent)
Chew on this...Bush had his hands on the Rangers for only 5 years and almost certainly ruined them.
He had his hands on the US economy for 8 years...
I've never lost hope in the Rangers. -Well, maybe once or twice, but it was pretty darn hard not to get upset with them through the years.-Oh, I have my qualms about Nolan Ryan's decision making and his aggrandizing of Bush every chance he gets. His rewarding of bad behavior by fans at the ballpark with season tickets and autographed jerseys. His raising of prices on everything in sight. His monument to stupidity that is to be erected outside the ballpark rewarding fatal judgement.(All shamelessly to avoid litigation)
But, I watched him kick Robin Ventura's ass and throw his last pitch in the old stadium so I kinda love the old screwhead. (Plus we have Old-School Brother, Ron Washington and a killer line-up.)
So here's to you Texas!
The National media will never take you seriously,
but I and the rest of the riff-raff will.
Let's go get a World Series!
