My adopted Texas Rangers are in New York for three games with the hated Yankees. The first game begins in less than four hours. I’m tingling with excitement. I can’t wait for Josh Hamilton to hit the first of his two mammoth home runs. I can’t wait for Choke-Rod to strike out three times and leave six runners on base. I can’t wait for Mike Mussina to get knocked out of the game in the third inning. I can’t wait for the ass-kicking to begin!

Addendum: And it has begun! Rangers win, 2-1. There is no better feeling in the world than watching the vile Yankee fans go home unhappy. As for Choke-Rod, he lived up to his name.
