Thankful to be a Cyclone

Let’s just put it out there. Between the quarterback carousel ride, some huge injuries and some games that didn't turn out in our favor, this fall has been kind of a rollercoaster ride for Cyclone...

Granderson: Where are the black fans?

14

Curtis Granderson challenged his fellow Yankees to "count the number of African-American" fans in the ballpark on a recent trip to Texas. The goal of the game was to count up to 10, without including people working at the stadium. "At first, it starts off as a joke," Granderson, who hit the second most home runs in baseball (42) between 2010 and this year's All-Star Game, (Toronto's Jose Bautista 61), told the Fort Worth-Star Telegram. "And as the game moves on, you'll get to 10, or maybe 15. Depends on where you are, too. Places like Chicago or New York, other places it's easy. Here (in Texas), it's hard. So after a while it becomes, 'Told you so.'"

C.J. refers to Athletics' offense style as "lawyer ball"

28

"It's like obviously no one sets out there to go walk guys, and I haven't been doing that lately,'' Wilson said. "It's just only against their team that I do that. They take everything close. If it's not called a strike, then they walk. It's lawyer ball. That's how they roll. "That's how they're going to beat me. That's how they have to beat me. I have to make a bunch of mistakes and walk a bunch of guys because they're not that good of a hitting team. The whole game was frustrating.'' Interesting quote. And it made me think of LSB. :)

Redhawks/I-Cubs - 5/7/10

1

I went to last Friday's Redhawks/I-Cubs game with a press pass and thought I'd share some of my shots with the community. They're on my facebook, but now they're also in a special photobucket. It was a cold, windy night and the Redhawks lost, but ...it was live baseball, finally, so I cannot complain too much. And, as you can see, I have an abundance of Chris Davis shots, so you definitely won't catch me complaining.

OT: Harrell gets in the holiday spirit

I enjoyed this for two reasons... 1. I am rather fond of Graham Harrell. 2. My friends and I had an ugly Christmas outfits bar crawl last weekend. Ha ha. P.S. I truly believe it's a travesty that Graham wasn't even INVITED to the Heisman ceremony on Sunday. I didn't figure he'd win, but he should have at least been invited. Grr.

I'm sharing with you all my baseball-themed Christmas tree. There are red, white and blue lights; blue and red ornaments and miniature baseballs and bats on the tree. Of course, there is also a Rangers santa hat as the "star" and --- my favorite part --- a baseball tree skirt, WHICH I MADE :-) And I'm going to be adding more stuff to the tree tomorrow. I got a 2008 team set of Rangers baseball cards, so I'll be making collectors everywhere cry when I punch a hole in them tomorrow and hang them on the tree. :-) P.S. That is my furry baby, Cleo, off to the right.

A few weeks back, the bloggers from Basecrawl asked for a human interest story at Rangers Ballpark as they're making a documentary featuring similary stories at each ballpark. They visited with Shirley "The Cookie Lady" Kost and her husband Cal the first weekend in August. Their short report is up tonight.
