Ranger Fan? Read this.

Brandon Thibodeaux for The Wall Street Journal
Saturday, the Wall Street Journal ran a front page article on two Texas Rangers fans who have been believing in their team since day one, almost 40 years. The paragraph below is pulled from the article. To read the rest: Wall Street Journal article.
"When Tom Schieffer was president of the Rangers from 1991 to 1999, the nuns were never shy about giving him advice about how to run his team, he says, and which player "needed to pay attention to his personal life."
Sister Frances is no fan of former owner Tom Hicks, and was none too pleased when, in 2000, he signed Alex Rodriguez to a 10-year-deal worth $252 million. Hicks Sports Group was forced to sell the team in bankruptcy court this past summer.
"He didn't know beans from bull foot about baseball," Sister Frances says of Mr. Hicks."
Sisters Frances and Maggie attend every home game and they are still predicting the Rangers to win in seven.

Thanks Jennifer. I noticed them on TV tonight a couple times. Tough loss. Great year for the Rangers, though.
