Thank God for the Texas Rangers!

I wanted to talk about how bad of a quarterback Tony Romo is, or how silly of a coach Jason Garrett is, or even how horrible of an owner Jerry Jones is.

However, I realized that any one of those topics could fill a book and I decided that, instead of focusing on the negatives that are currently coming out of Arlington, I would instead focus on the positive.

That being said, the Texas Rangers are in the World Series! That's right, the Texas Rangers have been able to make it back to the Fall Classic. Something that Jerry Jones and his failure of a team have been unable to do for over 15 years, but something that the Texas Rangers have been able to do for two consecutive years.

Last year, there were no expectations for the Rangers to make it as far as they did. They were the underdogs coming into the postseason having to battle their way through the playoffs in order to reach the 2010 World Series.

Yet, even though they battled hard last year and made the trades to get in a position to reach the playoffs,  the Texas Rangers went out with a whimper and not a bang in the World Series.

They had come so close and achieved something that had never before been obtained by their ball club. The Rangers entered the World Series with high hopes, but lost in an embarrassing fashion.

However, they have once again returned looking for redemption for last year. They have earned the right to be in the World Series again by dispatching the Tampa Bay Rays and the Detroit Tigers.

Standing in their way are the St. Louis Cardinals, who have had their own Cinderella trip to the World Series this year, and have a huge amount of momentum behind them. They are looking to stop the Rangers on their quest for their first World Series victory.

So, the Texas Rangers must battle one last time this year and it will not be an easy task.  The Rangers will be facing the Cardinals at home, due to Prince Fielder's blast in the All-Star Game and the ridiculous rule that allows the league that wins the All-Star Game to have home field advantage in the World Series.

I sincerely hope that the Texas Rangers will succeed and be victorious as they are a shining light in Texas Professional Sports.

With the Cowboys struggling and the NBA lockout having no end in sight, let us all look to the Rangers and support them on their quest to find redemption and bring a championship back to Texas.
