2010 Texas Rangers Season on Facebook

Every year on Opening Day of MLB for the previous 38 years of my life, I was hopeful, but not optimistic that the Texas Rangers would make it to the World Series. The 2010 season was no exception as the team wrapped up Spring Training in Surprise, AZ and headed for Arlington. I guarded my heart and curbed my enthusiasm all the way through the heat of August, but in the end it was an unbelievable ride.

The following is a chronology of my 2010 facebook posts through the course of the Rangers’ season.

Opening day for the Texas Rangers. Hope springs eternal…at least for April.

Crazy night at the Ballpark in Arlington…we’ll never forget this one (a fan fell out of the upper deck landing on the people below. After a long delay, on the next at bat, fans began a brawl over a foul ball).

I’m not there yet. Let’s wait to see what happens after the All-Star game. I’ve been hurt too much for too long.

Not just Smoak signals, Rangers acquire Cliff Lee and another reliever for their first baseman and three minor-leaguers. Will Davis get called back from OKC?

Texas…it’s hot. Rangers? they’re on fire!
July 24, 2010

Dear Texas Rangers, I’m in! Drinking the Kool-Aid, on the bandwagon, committing my heart. After 38 years, it’s time!

Rangers are AL West Champs heading into the post-season for the first time in 11 years. The stars are aligning — Lee, Wilson, and… Lewis? Hoping Hamilton can make it back this week.
September 27, 2010

Hallelujah! The Texas Rangers are a championship team again at last. http://es.pn/ax50f5

Los Angeles Angels of Aneheim, California – 1, Mitch Moreland – 2.

On day two, the post-season has finally begun for Michael Young with a 3-run homer and Rays manager, Joe Madden, is tossed out of the game.
October 7, 2010

Ok, Rangers. It’s time. Really. It’s time. I mean it.
October 12, 2010

FINALLY! After 50 years, a playoff series win for the Rangers franchise. Happy? Yes. Relieved? Definitely! Bring on the Yankees!
October 12, 2010

Four wins to the World Series, four more to win it.
October 13, 2010

Yes, I’m watching…waiting…and worrying.
October 16, 2010

When the Cowboys grow up…they want to be Texas RANGERS!
October 17, 2010

Tonight’s ALCS Game is brought to you by the letters R, H, and K; starring Josh Hamilton, Cliff Lee and YOUR…TEXAS…RANGERS!!!
October 18, 2010

Hunter on pitching at Yankee Stadium, “I had Moms screaming at me when I was 12 that’s probably more intimidating than people I don’t know.”
October 18, 2010

He’s the most interesting Molina in the world. “I don’t always hit homeruns, but when I do, I hit them against the Yankees.” Stay thirsty my friends.
October 19, 2010

Never though I would live to see this day. The TEXAS RANGERS are going to the MLB WORLD SERIES.
October 22, 2010

Dear Rangers, Thanks for the great win. Thanks for the long ride. It was worth it. I promise not to call you the Texas Strangers ever again.
October 22, 2010

Had a crazy dream last night that the Texas Rangers beat the New York Yankees in the ALCS playoffs and are going to the World Series.
October 23, 2010

So who else doesn’t know what to do with all of their nervous energy about tonight’s World Series Game?
October 27, 2010

Let’s Go Rangers! We need some hits before the Giants turn to their bullpen of Rutherford B. Hayes and Abraham Lincoln.
October 27, 2010

Great game by CJ is overshadowed by a complete bullpen meltdown. Nolan’s packing Rangers into his pick-up and driving thru the night back to Texas. Except for Holland, Lowe, and Kirkman – they have to walk.
October 28, 2010

It’s Time! GO RANGERS!!! I’ve got my antlers up and my rally towel out!
October 30, 2010

Hello World Series Win Column!!!
October 30, 2010

Waving my Rally towel. Waiting for the Rangers to drop the Claw and Antlers on SF.
October 31, 2010

Nolan, let me know if you need me to be there tonight to help the Rangers win Game #5. I can just pick up the tickets at Will Call. I’m also available to fly with the team to San Francisco for Games 6 & 7. You know how to reach me. Larry

Thank you, Texas Rangers, we enjoyed the ride. Let’s do it again next year!
