One game does not a series make

Well Rangers fans, so Game 1 of the World Series didn’t go exactly as planned.
Lucky for Texas and everyone watching, this is a series and it’s far from over.

Despite some struggles and a few errors in the first game, the Rangers have what it takes to clinch the title and make their dominance known and if they even begin to doubt that all they’ll need to do is think of the fans.

This is the stuff history is made of and the Rangers have the talent and the drive to make history happen and bring home the title.

Rangers and fans alike believe in their abilities and even those folks that may not be baseball fans or may support another team realize what a huge economical impact this series makes for Texas.

T-shirts, baseballs, refreshments at the ballpark and not to mention ticket sales have made this a very lucrative opportunity for vendors, restaurants and hotels alike.

This is the first time ever that the Rangers have made it this far and fans take that very seriously and will pretty much shell out whatever cash necessary to be a part of history in some way.

Everywhere you look, Ranger pride is beaming. You’d be hard pressed to walk in to any local business around Ennis and not find someone supporting and rooting for the Rangers with a display on their T-shirt or ball cap.

Have you driven down Ennis Avenue lately? Gina Rokas and Paula Campo have decked out “Hank the Deer” in his Ranger garb to represent their team spirit and he’s sitting right on the avenue to greet anyone that may pass by.

This is just one example of how exited everyone is to be a witness to the Rangers and their hard work and determination finally paying off. People everywhere have shoe-polished their cars in support of Cliff Lee, Bengie Molina and the rest of the Rangers’ crew.

Although this is the first appearance by a Texas team to the World Series, there is something nostalgic about it at the same time. Just seeing the cameras zoom in on Nolan Ryan and his reaction to the happenings of the game is worth this experience.

For most of us he is the epitome of Texas Rangers spirit and just seeing him get to experience this takes us back to his days on the field.

Whatever it is about the Rangers in the World Series that stands out to you let it be known. Rally ‘round the troops and let them know they’ve got the state of Texas behind them cheering them on.

Even if you’re not a baseball fan, at this point it’s more about being a fan of the state and showing that Texas pride that is known around the country.
