VALLEY RANCH — It was the best of times, it was the worst of times! Yeah, Sunday was a roller coaster for DFW sports fans! First, the Rangers bring home the AL West title. Then, the Cowboys get their hearts broken in OT out in Nawlins.
The loss drops the Boys to 2-2 and also brought even more injuries to a team. Lance Dunbar is probably done for the season after a devastating knee injury, and Sean Lee is ailing with a concussion.
“We watched the tape today as coaches. Tomorrow, we’ll watch it with our players, we’ll learn from it, we’ll put it behind us and get ready for the Patriots” said coach Garrett when asked how this team would handle the tough loss.
With the Cowboys season is quickly falling into disarray, the baseball party in the Metroplex is still going on!
Ninety Arlington elementary school kids had a healthy eating lesson and playoff rally party Monday, and a lucky student even scored playoff tickets to Game 3.
“Her reaction was awesome, just how excited she was to get to come to our game,” said relief pitcher Ross Ohlendorf who presented the fifth grader with the tickets. “It’s such an exciting time right now to be able to do it for our fans and interact with fans right afterwards is great.”
So, while the expectations of a Super Bowl season are falling apart for the Boys, a season with no expectations is now just seven wins away from the World Series.
“Any opportunity you have to win and be in the postseason is special, regardless in my opinion of how you get there,” said Rangers GM Jon Daniels. “We’re going to enjoy it. We’re going to work hard and try to keep this thing going as long as we can, hopefully right to the end.”
With this unpredictable season, it’s best to remember the words of the great Casey Stengel: “Never make predictions, especially about the future!”
