On June 18, I posted this rose-colored tribute to the Texas Rangers and exalted on how after 10 years of despising them and refusing to watch them play, I finally broke down and watched a game, enjoyed it, and considered lifting my longtime ban and embracing the team once again.
They were in first place at the time, about five games ahead in their division.
I was ready to jump on the bandwagon.
Well, after my naive post, the team lost its next five games, lost eight of its past 11, and have fallen 2-1/2 games behind the Angels.
I’m off the wagon again.
Screw the Rangers. Go Cowboys!
