Opening Day

Surely I can't keep up this nearly daily blogging but might as well while I have the time!

Yesterday we attended Opening Day for the Texas Rangers. Ceremonies included much Texan and American patriotism - giant flags, Roger Staubach throwing out the first pitch, Double amputee parachuter bringing the game ball, and jets flying over head following the national anthem. Added bonus - they were playing the Toronto Blue Jays so we got to belt out the Canadian National anthem as well.

The game was not that great at the start considering that Toronto had a no hitter through 6 1/3 and the Rangers were down 3-0. Frank's new fantasy baseball players Cruz and Guerrero helped get the Rangers to within one at 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth. Here are the girls in their rally caps which obviously worked as the Rangers came back and won 5-4!!
Maybe this is the start of something good for the Rangers and their new season catch phrase will come true for them this season:
PS No pictures of Madeline - she chose not to attend - or Marcy, who sat on the other side of the stadium with the Rehagens. Check out her Opening Day experience on Sarah's blog at http://likethedickens.blogspot.com/
