It hasn't been this much fun to be a Rangers fan since . . . since the summer of 1993. (The strike of 1994 ruined baseball for me until last year. And last year wasn't fun.)
And I haven't appreciated a Ranger as much as I appreciate Josh Hamilton since the days of Pudge. Now Mr. Hamilton just needs a cool nickname. Any ideas? I'm thinking "Second-Chance Sam" is too cheesey. Where's Chris Berman when you need him?
Anyway--the Rangers were down 4-2 with two outs in the bottom of the 9th tonight, when Michael Young singled in Ramon Vazquez, setting the table for Hamilton's walk-off homer. The final score? 5-4 Rangers.
We probably won't make the playoffs, but we can enjoy beating the Angels any day.
