Attended 15 Rangers games in 1973 while working in Arlington. I tend to be very old school baseball, and with Nolan Ryan as Pres it is nice to see this team playing well.

Went to college in Dallas area. I lived in Arlington in the summer of 1973. Met a bunch of players, and when I was in college two of my favaorite interviews were with Dave Nelson (2nd base) and Frank Luchessi.

I never expected the Rangers to be good, but always hoped they would be competitive. The 2010 season has been immensely fun.
