Don’t forget: Dallas also hosted the NBA All-Star game this year as well. Anyone planning on making the trip, enjoy the game. The Ballpark in Arlington is a gem!

I must admit I watched the final out with a great deal of satisfaction. Not only did the Rangers punch their ticket to the World Series, they did it by beating the Yankees. Oh, so SWEET!

Here’s to the Rangers’ winning the 2010 World Series!

Dallas fans must be going crazy. Here’s another championship game the Cowboys can watch on TV.

And best of all, A-Fraud struck out for the final out. JUSTICE!

That’s the other great thing, it makes those sad sack Cowboys now an afterthought here.

For years the Rangers have played second fiddle to the Cowboys, but now with this new ownership, the Rangers will close that gap, they are going to be contenders for years.

They have every right to celebrate....good on ‘em.

Let’s hope it’s a premonition of the November blue state vs. red state battles.

I'm hoping the WS matchup is the Rangers vs. the Gnats [sic]. A TEXAS team taking it to one from the most liberal area in the country would be sweet.

As a Red Sox fan it was funny to hear the Rangers fans (and maybe some Yankees fans) chanting “Yankees Suck” tonight, and in this series, they did.

Yeah, we got a good laugh out of that as well. I've heard that chant in a lot of ball parks this year (both in person and on TV)... not just at Fenway. ;-)

Congrats to the Texas Rangers. This is their first trip ever to the World Series in the 50th season this franchise has existed. The franchise was originally the Washington Senators, formed in 1961 as an expansion team to replace the original Senators franchise, which moved to Minnesota and became the Twins.

I can remember back in 1961 when any of us kids got a Washington Senator baseball card we would be severly disapointed.

I think it'll be Philly too, but Texas will have their hands full - Philadephia is really tough. Good offense and rock-solid defense. This could be one for the ages.

As a fellow Dallasite, whose been firmly on the bandwagon, since day 1 of this year, BAM YANKEES, take that.

Here in DFW, you could hear the scream all the way from NY every time TBS showed President Bush on tv.

This series is going to be a precursor to the upcoming elections: total domination by the conservative, hardworking state over the elitest bums from the northeast.

Yup, I told my wife when that last out was made, “Mark Holtz is looking down from heaven and is shouting: “HE STRUCK HIM OUT - HELLO WIN COLUMN - HELLO WORLD SERIES””

Saw him in person once right before a home game. What a play by play genius. Sure do miss him.

Congratulations Rangers. Way to Go!!!

Thank you Nolan Ryan for finally getting the pitching we needed.

Congratulations Texas Rangers!!! What a well-deserved win... very classy team!

My husband and I have a bit of a soft spot for David Murphy, who came up through the Red Sox farm system. Over the years we cheered for him as a Portland (Maine) Sea Dog (AA), a Pawtucket (RI) Red Sox (AAA) player, and finally as a member of the Boston Red Sox. We spoke to him at batting practice at Fenway a few months ago when the Rangers were in town (he signed a ball for us). NICE guy, and we're so happy for him!

At the old stadium? I remember actual bleachers back then, that’s where we usually ended up since it was nearly free.

The new stadium is pretty great. I wish I had pics of the old one though, it had a weird charm to it. I remember almost every night at games in the 80’s there were drunken fights in the bleachers.

And when Josh Hamilton accepted the ALCS MVP, he gave thanks to God and Jesus Christ, FIRST!!! Then, he redirected the credit to the rest of his team. As I listened, the one word that echoed through my mind was: REDEMPTION!!!

Josh Hamilton nearly destroyed his life with alcohol, but he was redeemed through His love and grace and given a second chance at this life. Josh has done good. He loves this team and they love him. How much? So much so the team celebrated their first playoff series win with non-alcoholic beverages, just so Josh could be a part of the celebration.

Sorry to ramble on.

Great post, and congratulations to the Texas Rangers! We're in CT, but have the MLB package and it warms my heart every time I see the fans in Arlington cheer for Dubya and Laura Bush when they attend Rangers games throughout the season. You'd never see that here 'up north'.

I also loved the huge cheer that rose up from the Rangers fans tonight when Josh Hamilton said: "All glory and honor goes to God... Lord Jesus Christ!" Wow. Makes me want to pack up and move to Texas right now... ;-)

“I’m thinking that a certain former Rangers owner - and also former President - should start practicing a first pitch...

And remember, Mr. President, in Texas we throw from the mound!”

What a thought. Wouldn’t it be great to see him smoke in another pitch from the mound just like he did right after 911.

Anyone here brave enough to venture over to DU or Kos? Those sites have such poor HTML coding and so much needless eye-candy junk that I avoid them due to the S-L-O-W page rendering. And I haven't even mentioned the disgusting content.

I know that anything even remotely related to Texas (or the South in general) is Kryptonite to those folks. Their poor lil' liberal heads must be exploding tonight. I wish them well. NOT!

I saw many a game at the old field. I grew up in North Arlington.

I used to pay $7 dollars to sit in the outfield bleachers. It was real cheap.

It was so cheap everyone had lots of money left to get
really drunk. But lots of fun.

I try to go once a season, to the all you can eat section that’s about $35 now. I load up on the food..

But, the hotdogs are not as good as you get when you pay.

Boy I certainly saw no evidence last Friday.
Never heard MF screamed at a ballplayer before.
The chants of A-roid etc. Yankees suck and the like may fit well some crowds, but disappointing and offputting to me.
Never felt embarrassed about fellow fans in 35 years of attending games.
Must have been Cowboy fans...

Maybe it was back when they didn’t win much that they were quiet. I guess when they hit the playoffs, the crowd gets loud.
