Rangers Jinx

My dad and I finally made the decision this year to visit the Rangers during spring-training back in March. We'd been talking about it for a long time and decided to actually go. Because of getting to meet the players and see them play up-close, I've been a much bigger fan this year. And they've actually been good this year - lots of fun to watch.

As unlikely as it sounds, the Rangers have been in the playoff race most of the season and stayed with the Angels and the Red Sox, who are both looking to make the playoffs. We've even purchased tickets to go see the Rangers in person this Friday night (when the Angels come in town - could be a make or break series) - plan on taking the kids and everything!

All that being said, I gave in to the temptation to purchase post-season tickets when they went on sale last week. A man has to hope, doesn't he? Well, since then, the Rangers have lost 3 out of 4 games and look like all the rain in Arlington is getting to them. With only 19 games to go in the season, and being 3 1/2 out of the wild-card and 6 out in the AL West, the Rangers have got to step it up and do it quickly.

I guess I'm wondering, did we jinx the Rangers by buying playoff tickets too early?

maybe it was a collective jinx of both you and chris buying playoff tickets.

Just in case you did, I'm asking you, friend to friend, to NOT purchase Cowboy tickets ;-)

My wife made the same observation about MY purchase of playoff tickets. Ugh.
