The continuing genius of the Texas Rangers

The next time you want to complain about the incompetence of your favorite baseball teams’ ownership, consider the plight of the average Texas Rangers fan.  This is a franchise that has never been in a League Championship game.  Their signing of Alex Rodriguez may be the worst free agent signing in history (they consistently finished in last place while he was collecting a zillion dollars per minute).  They’re big off-season acquisition this year was….(drumroll) Andruw Jones, whom even the Washington Nationals passed on.

But all of this is not the greatest sign of the ineptness of this organization.  Each year, teams have an Opening Day.  A day when hope springs eternal and the stadium is packed with fans who will cheer their home team regardless of the teams’ prospects.  Players can know that this is the one day, where everyone is happy……unless you schedule the “person most likely to get the most boo’s in the country continent world”.  A person who has only made one public appearance in the last 60 days and that was in Canada where he wasn’t allowed in public view due to protestors vehement objections to his presence.

Yes, the genius that is Tom Hicks has scheduled George W. Bush to throw out the first pitch on Opening Day.

….hopefully they’ll schedule Rick Wagoner to sing, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch.

  1. Haha…nice. Here in Detroit as recently as 2006 or 2007 the Tigers organization continued to trot out such MI favorites as Jennifer Granholm and Kwame Kilpatrick. The fans over the years were getting noticeably more and more vocal in their disapproval of them being around on such a sacred day. The Tigers have avoided this circus for the past couple of seasons.

    Here’s another thought/tip…maybe Dallas’s latest high-profile resident Kwame should throw out the first pitch. Fun.
