This past weekend Chevy gave me tickets to the Ranger game.
If you ever come to the DFW area, you’ve gotta go to a Ranger game.
Their stadium is in Arlington, Texas. About 15-20 miles from Dallas.
I remember when the new Ranger stadium was built. I was in high school when it opened and the first game was played on the new grounds.
And here is an interesting tidbit. The brick on the outside of the stadium is called Ranger Red. It was made for the stadium by Acme Brick. The color was such a hit, Acme Brick soon started making it not just for commercial buildings but also for residential homes. I know this because I worked for Acme Brick from 1995-1998. (Commercial brick and residential brick are two different sizes.)
Am I full of useless information or what?
Back to the ballpark.
I totally dig this trolley and bike cart that were toting people to and fro.
But I would not want to be the one peddling.
I have no inside scoop about the trolley or the bike.
If you ever want a tour of the stadium, they offer them.
I’ve been on one. Lots of great info and history about the organization.
There is an underground roadway for semi’s to make deliveries to the ballpark.
Learned it on the tour.
You’ll sleep better tonight knowing that, won’t you?
Are you a Ranger fan?
Who is your favorite player?
My friend likes Murphy.
Mostly because her maiden name is Murphy and she believes there is a slim chance she could be related to him.
And his shirt was on sale.
She paid full price for the shirt.
My friend and her husband are high school sweethearts.
He is pretty much certain she is NOT related to the Ranger’s player Murphy.
I think a girl can dream, right?
Did I mention Garrett and Anthony played baseball with their son?
My husband has known her husband since they were teenagers.
Everything is connected in Texas.
Isn’t the grass perfect?
Even though it is September here, it was blistering hot.
(See, my yellow shoes? They take me everywhere and go with every outfit I own. Except yoga pants.)
We were melting out there.
See that fenced in balcony across the way?
There is an air conditioned restaurant over there.
About half way through the game, we sat in the air conditioning.
Red and blue.
Texas Ranger fans.
I love the feeling of people on the street.
The smell of hot dogs.
The red and blue.
Here is more useless information for ya.
See this building below? That is the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium.
The Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
It is right across the street from the Ranger stadium.
It is the stadium the Super Bowl was held in this past year.
The Black Eyed Peas performed. I took a narcissism test after watching the Black Eyed Peas perform.
Troy Aikman used to play for the Cowboys.
Troy Aikman used to be an endorser of Acme Brick back in the 90′s.
Jason Garrett is the new head coach for the Cowboys.
Jason Garrett was Aikman’s backup quarterback in the 90′s.
I have a son named Garrett and a son with the middle name Jason.
The six degrees of Crystal & Co.
You should visit DFW sometime.
You’d like it.
I know I do.
