What would it be? First of all hello, very long time reader, i made a rare post or two like in 07 or 08, but this is my first real statement of substance. I dwell in Tulsa, 26 years old and a Rangers fan, as in obsessed fan, since oh 1992. Growing up in Tulsa I practically lived down in Driller Stadium in my youth and would follow the team there rabidly, and watch in excitement as they promoted South and could watch them on TV. This led to me naturally becoming a Rangers fan.
My father began taking me down to see a game every year since 1993, and I would only get to see one back then due to his busy schedule. I would pour over the schedule and promotions and pick the ideal game I could see. Ive been to some memorable games and moments, from Ryan's number being retired in 1996, the first ever interleague game in 1997 vs the Padres to the game I got all teary eyed at in 2003 when Florida came to the ballpark and there was that nice moment welcoming Pudge back and presenting him with the division title banner........but I've also been to some crappy games, most memorably I watched the entire final series vs. Seatle at the end of the 04 season, were if we would of won the series we would of been primed to over take LA in the last week, only to see them get crushed and momentum killed and the season lost. Ive been down to see them play Boston, an experince I never wish to repeat. And my favorite worse game was this gem: http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/TEX/TEX200506170.shtml (bonus points to who ever first figures out why that was a bad bad bad game)
Sadley due to work I was unable to see a game in 09, my first skipped year since 93. My last game was in 08 and I saw a gem of a game pitched....and i just pretend that the Rangers were wearing Toronto uniforms and that old Roy was pitching for us, made that CG he pitched more enjoyable to watch. So this year I want to go down and watch some good baseball but I'm at a loss of when and against who. Do I go early in the season before everyone gets hurt or traded...after the All Star break so I can get my Smoak on? I know I said game but im thinking more series, just trying to plan my vacation ahead. Im thinking a LA or SEA series for energy sake, do not think I'd like to see a NY game with the Yankee fans all out and about. But then again I see the Pirates making a trip and imagining our bats could put on a show like yesteryears against their AAA pitchers.
But knowing me I'll just go on whatever night they are giving away left over Jason Botts bobble heads at the gates. Any suggestions out there? Didn't mean to write so much, I get awfully wordy in the mornings. Ive always been tempted to get active on here, perhaps this will be my gateway post....
