Ranger's and July 4th

for 229th birthday of our great nations independence i went to watch the all american game of baseball. though the temperature outside was hot, the game evening was just starting to heat up. the ranger's started of the game with 3 quick runs in the 1st, but in the 6th boston came back to tie the game at 3. two inning later i watch manny ramirez jack a 446 footer to center field making it 5.3 redsox. texas put a run on the board in the bottom of that same inning to make it 5-4. with the rangers trailing, 5-4, in the ninth, Michael Young hit a one-out triple to the gap in right-center field off red sox closer keith foulke, and scored when mark teixeira followed with a sharp double to right field to tie the game at 5. hank blalock drew a walk and foulke hit alfonso soriano with a pitch to load the bases to set up kevin mench's line drive down the left field line to win the game. final score, good guys 6 bad guys 5.

While you were at the game, we were at the picnic, thinking about taking your grill hostage (Shannon coveted it). Instead we had to settle for taking home a jar of unclaimed dill pickle chips. But the fireworks were nice...
