You know the 2007 Texas Rangers season has been very forgettable. Hell, the last 10 years with the exception of the somewhat optimistic 2004 season have been downright embarrassing if you are real Texas Rangers fan, all 250 in the Metroplex. Well, yesterday evening in the first game of an otherwise meaningless doubleheader between the Orioles and Rangers was salvation for Rangers fans.
After spotting the Orioles 3-0 lead,the Rangers scored 30 unanswered runs and ended up winning 30-3 which was a modern MLB record for runs in a game by one team since 1897. Let that digest for a minute. That is a 110 years worth of major league baseball and it has never happened before.
And oh yea, college football is 7 days away so the Rangers will be an afterthought again in about oh 2 days. But there is hope for the future when cheering Texas Rangers baseball and last night proved it.
Texas wins National Championship in Merchandising
The University of Florida may have won both the football and men's basketball national championships last season, but when it came to selling merchandise, the Gators could finish no better than third behind the No.1-ranked University of Texas.
For the second straight year, Texas topped the Collegiate Licensing Company's clients in collecting royalties. Notre Dame placed second, followed by Florida, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Penn State.
Notre Dame Freshman sing (or attempt) to Fans
Speaking of the bitter TX-Ou rivalry...
An Oklahoma City man has been charged with aggravated assault and battery, accused of causing extensive damage to another man's scrotum just because he wore a University of Texas shirt into a local bar.
God, I love Sooner fans.
