I have to say that the nickname of "homer" describes me well. A homer is one who pulls for their team (the home team) no matter what. For me that involves most any team from the great state of Texas. This yer they have not been kind to my fellow homers and myself. The Cowboys are stinking it up, the Longhorns have lost two games, (one to the team my homer husband cheers for, Oklahoma. That was hard to take), the Mavs and Spurs didn't do so well either. I'm not a fair weather fan ans some may be. I still root for my teams no matter what. It's just that this year they aren't giving me much to cheer about. That is except for my Texas Rangers! At this moment they are whooping up on the Yankees. It is the 9th inning and they have just scored four runs and are still batting. A southern girl couldn't ask for a better team to beat!
I remember when I was a little girl, traveling from the Oklahoma panhandle to visit my grandparents in north central Texas. It was a 7 hour drive and much of it was filled with listening to the AM radio station, WBAP. I can still here the station's jingle in my head as I type this. It was the station of the Rangers. I grew up loving the Rangers and they stunk. As a matter of fact, this year they became the last franchise to win a post season series. 37 years as the rangers and this was their first. They also just won their first home playoff game against the much loathed Yankees. If they can pull of winning this series, my favorite team will be in their first World Series! (Okay, they just scored again with runners at 2nd and 3rd. 7-0 Rangers!)
Maybe it is a trivial thing, but I love it!
Cliff Lee is my new favorite pitcher, sorry Nolan! Also a former Ranger and now a part owner of he Rangers.
