Yep, my money's on these guys...
I wasn't there but it didn't matter. We started off at Union Jacks where we sat at the bar, head to toe in Rangers gear. Loners in a Midwest town. The game was slow until the 5th inning when I ordered my Ranger IPA, then all hell broke loose and the Rangers scored 4 more runs. I even told the bar tender, You know what? I'll take a Ranger IPA. Last time I did that good things happened. Totally true story. The bar tender was impressed to say the least. So I'm not saying I had anything to do with their Game 6 ALCS win, but I'm just sayin... Ranger IPA needs to be your beer of choice for the next 2 weeks, deal?
We caught the last 2 innings at our next door neighbors', who happen to be the best neighbors ever. At 11 p.m. we invaded their living room (a common occurrence) where the game was on and their 8 & 5 year olds were asleep on the a pallet, facing the TV. Cute. I tried to control myself as best I could util the bottom of the 9th when A-Rod of all people, poetically struck the fug out. Yep, full circle. I danced like a crazy person while 5-year old Jake questioned my seizure-like antics, I couldn't believe it and yet I soooooo could. History was made and I like to think that the world and all anti-Yankees fans rejoiced.
I'm stating for the record/blog that even if my Rangers don't win the World Series, I will still love them just the same. The real question though is Will you?
See you Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. EST and don't forget to order your Ranger IPA dammit.
Cau for now.
Furiously Happy PS - When I went to sleep that night, I remember thinking that there wasn't much at that point that could make me as happy as the Rangers winning the game. But that night, I dreamt that I was at a private movie screening (you know, because that's how I roll) and Stevie Wonder sat right down next to me and I bawled like a baby. Again. So unless Stevie Wonder comes my way any time soon, the ALCS win will be my top furiously happy moment. The end.
