    Buck just made the most boring call on Hamilton's likely-game-winning home run.

    We were winning and gave up leads in the 8th, 9th, and 10th. We were one strike away in the 9th and the 10th. I seriously want to cry right now.

    The straw that broke the camels back was when they decided to use a pinch hitter rather than let the pitcher go to the plate. They sacrificed their best pitcher and didn't get a run out of it, and that was that. Even if it was a loss, that was still one of the best games I've seen in years.

    But go Cardinals.

    Hey I have no allegiances here. I'm a goddamn Mariners fan. I think the Rangers are a fresh-sealed pack of assholes. I just thought they would put up the monster offensive numbers to win the series (they have) and then not blow it like they are.

    And just because Hamilton's homer wasn't the game-winner doesn't mean Buck should be excused for watching a two-run homer in the ninth to break the tie and going, "Hey look, a home run."

    That was a pathetic home run call. And Hamilton pulled the ball in cold weather, in the 10th I believe, with a sports hernia and a strained groin. I love my team and their personality, they make baseball fun.

    Game 7 tonight, go big or go home. I believe in my team and have stood by them my entire life, through thick and thin. Tonight won't be any different. There is a great blog on this site I read that came out this morning. bbtia.com

    To quote them,

    That's certainly true. Sometimes I'm not sure how my brother and I became such big sports fans when nobody else is quite as into it as we are. I get that we have no pro teams, but that's true of a lot of places.

    Anyway, I'm just saying that your Texas Rangers prose is the faggiest thing I've read since Longo's diary.
