Word up ya'll, who'da thought the Texas Rangers would have made it this far this season? We had our hopes for the AL West and I would have been totally happy with that. But they just didn't stop there. They kept going and the fans came out of the wood work - finally. Sadly they lost tonight in game 5 of the World Series against the SF Giants but my Rangers hat goes off to those guys as well. Kinda scrappy, lots of youth, and damn good pitching. I didn't hate them. On the upside, this season finally put the Rangers back on the map and reminded the world that we (you know, because I'm one of them) do exist. Except our bullpen. They need to get freaking serious. Also on the upside was my October post count - I was on fire!
So what am I going to write about now? No Lost, no baseball, but at least elections are TOMORROW and as I wade my way through that book - you know, the one about the biological grandfather whom I've never met penned by the biological half-uncle whom I've also never met? - I will drop some nuggets of insight for you from time to time just cuz you gotta read it to believe it.
Nugget #1, page 2: I was destined to follow in the footsteps of my third cousin, Sir Muhammad Lowry, who, according to genealogists and historians, wrote the classic poem 'Beowulf' in 1017 A.D. Yes, it actually says that and I'm pretty sure he wasn't kidding. If anyone out there can actually prove that little nugget then I will gladly eat crow. But until that happens I say to you...
Cau for now and get out the vote folks!
According to my mom's comment in the previous post, I have met Biograndf before but was too young to remember. Inneresting.
