Texas Rangers are going to the World Series!!!
Marcus' best sport was baseball. He loved playing the sport and he loved going to Arlington to watch the Rangers play. The picture to the left was at the Old Arlington Stadium, before the Ball Park in Arlington was built. When we went to the games he always wanted us to buy him the pennant of the visiting team. He wanted to see every single American League team play. By the time he was a teen, we have collected all of the American League teams. Then Major League Baseball started, inter-league play and we did not go enough to collect all of the National League team's pennants.
Last night the Rangers clinched the American League championship by beating the New York Yankees in Arlington. My wife and I enjoyed the victory but there definitely was something missing. Marcus did not like watching sports on t.v. during the regular seasons but he loved watching the playoffs. I cannot help but long for him while the celebration was going on. After texting our son Alex of the game's results, I almost wishful thinikingly texted Marcus' old cell number. I thought better of it. I am sure the number is now assigned to someone else. You will have to shoot me to get me to erase it from my cell phone.
