Rangers defeat the Blue Jays
Julie and I drove to Arlington, Texas yesterday to watch the game between the Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays. We had a great time at the game, and had excellent seats along the first base line. Julie gave the 1st base umpire a hard time a few times and heckled Brad Wilkerson who stinks, and I was able to take a few pictures of the Rangers dugout and important Ranger players and manager Ron Washington who we both admire. One of the best parts of the game was at the end, they announced that ALL FANS were able to run the bases after the crowd dispersed. Julie showed off her jets as she nearly took out a stooge posing at home plate, and I was able to pass slower traffic running the bases the proper way in the shape of bananas. Sarah came over in the afternoon to let the boys out, and we got home in the evening. The Rangers won the game 3-2 on Michael Young's 8th inning home run and Aki Otsuka came in for the 9th inning to close it out. Julie also wanted me to mention that she picked both Rangers who homered in the game (Young and Texiera) in our "picks to click" as we drove up I-35.
