As many of you know, I am not a huge professional sports fan. I enjoy watching a game now and again as much as the next guy, but who is on which team and which team is doing well this year does not consume my life. I have been a "hometown fan" for as long as I can remember even when those teams were nothing to write home about.
Lord knows the Dallas area sports teams have had their share of moments where they would have preferred NOT to be in the spotlight on or off the field. It's nice to see a moment when the SHOULD be in the spotlight for something that has nothing to do with the latest box scores.
This may be nothing more than a symbolic gesture on the part of the Rangers, but I really don't care. It's much better news than which overpaid, barely educated, drug snorting, prostitute abusing, malcontent "athlete" is in trouble this week for drunk driving/drugs/dog fighting/drive by shootings/ETC. It would be nice to see more stories like this from professional sports and fewer stories about the latest tantrum by the team "star" about why he's not getting paid enough to play with someone else's balls (or pucks if your a hockey fan).
