AS OF MAY 23, 2009 (TODAY) THE RANGERS ARE EIGHT GAMES OVER 500, ON MAY 23, 2008 THE CLUB WAS AN EVEN 500 WITH 25 WINS AND 25 LOSES OR WHAT I CALLED "BETTER THEN THE YEAR BEFORE".

THE 2009 SEASON IS VERY PROMISING FOR RANGER FANS, THE NOTION THAT THIS CLUB HAS BEEN IN FIRST PLACE IN THEIR DIVISION FOR MAJORITY OF THE 2009 SEASON IS SOMETHING NEW TO US. WE AS FANS ARE SHOWING UP TO THE GAMES MORE OFTEN, BUYING MORE OF THE "GEAR" THE PLAYERS WEAR, WE ARE JUST GENUINELY ENTHUSED WITH A OUR MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL TEAM.

I MYSELF BOUGHT ONE OF THE NEW RED JERSEYS, EVEN THOUGH IT MAKES ME LOOK LIKE SYDNEY PONSON AFTER A COUPLE BEERS, JUST TO SHOW MY SUPPORT WHEN I ATTEND THE GAMES.

AFTERWARDS I TOOK A WALK IN DOWNTOWN DALLAS, WHERE EVERY DALLAS MAVERICKS FAN IS ABOUT --- THAT CLOSE TO JUMPING OFF THE NEAREST HIGH RISE, AND LIKE ALL PEOPLE I HAVE TO PASS RANDOM STRANGERS ALONG MY STROLL.I THOUGHT TO MYSELF "TODAY IS KINDA DIFFERENT" AND IT WAS, I PASS SOMEONE AND THEY GIVE A LITTLE SMILE, I STICK MY NEW RED JERSEY OUT A LITTLE AND I GET A WINK FROM (CLEARS THROAT) AN ATTRACTIVE YOUNG WOMEN.

IT'S NOT ME, ITS THE JERSEY, ITS THE HAPPINESS THAT COMES ALONG WITH A FIRST PLACE MAJOR LEAGUE BALL CLUB IN YOUR CITY. WHEN SOMEONE ASKS ME ABOUT THE 2009 BASEBALL SEASON, I'M THE FIRST ONE TO STAND UP ON MY CHAIR AND YELL "THE #$%@ RANGERS ARE IN FIRST PLACE, AND I LOVE THEM", TO MANY LAUGHS BUT THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE I NEGLECTED TO MENTION THAT WHEN I SAID "SOMEONE ASKS ME" I ACTUALLY MEANT THAT I ACTED ALONE AND YELLED AN UNINFLUENCED GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT SENTENCE CONTAINING A SWEAR WORD IN THE MIDDLE OF A POST OFFICE.

IT WAS YESTERDAY, NELSON CRUZ AND HANK BLALOCK HIT BACK TO BACK HOME RUNS IN A WIN OVER HOUSTON. WITH THE WIN THE RANGERS TAKE A 2-O SERIES LEAD IN "THE LONE-STAR SERIES" WHICH MAKES THIS CONTRIBUTOR SAY "HEY IT'S WAY BETTER THEN LAST YEAR".
