players were suspended for shoplifting in China. Not only did they shoplift, but they shoplifted from three different stores. Chinese police picked them up and their passports were taken, and travel restriction placed on them. I guess they thought that it wouldn't catch up to them since they were abroad. Apparently it went viral enough for Trump to get involved - of course taking credit for their release. I know they're just in college, but they need to understand, that they are pseudo public figures.
And the Rangers fans wept...
Don't look now but it's a tied series. After last night's game it kinda feels like this is going to 7.
Yeah, if that Astros/Rangers WS were possible it would be an epic Texas clash. Lots of trash talk going down.
Agreed. But that's why it's just a fantasy. Rangers and the Cubs would be awesome too.
I think that's why the Astros are the underdogs going in. Hard to find any holes to the Dodgers. Much as I would like to root for the underdogs here, give me the Dodgers in a 4-2 series. Bullpen is just too stout.
Yeah I hear you. As much as I'd like to have a Texas team actually win the series, you can't hold a candle to the Dodgers. The Astros should put up a decent fight though. My fantasy World Series would be the Rangers against the Astros. Texas would spontaneously combust if that were to happen. ;)
I know, two seasons ago, we would have never thought this would happen. I remember sitting in the bleachers behind the Rangers' dugout, booing the Astros with the rest of them. I even recall only one Astros fan sitting in front of me. How did I know? He was the only one to stand and clap while his family, wearing Rangers caps looked up and shook their heads while laughing at him. The caught the oldest man of the group in front of me texted something like "This is just too funny," or something like that. So here we are Rangers fans, we are getting close to the possibility of having no room to talk because if Houston wins, our backs are against the ropes, and it won't be "too funny" this time around.
So why will we root for the Astros anyway? It's simple, we are Texans, and Texans will root for a dead horse, as long as it's... Texan - see: The Dallas Cowboys. It's just like when Mavs fans root for the Spurs if they make it to the playoffs. Yes, we prefer our home city teams, but ultimately, we want every championship trophy or ring to make its way back over the Red River.
I found a fun article on the Dallas Morning News' page today. The reasons in the article are mostly tongue-in-cheek, but Check it out anyway. At least it will take the sting off of watching the Astros participate in a championship we wanted the Ranger to instead.
The NFL is giving away less than 1 percent of all tickets available. So pretty much your chances of winning them are slim to none. Even if you did win them, you'd have a heck of a time trying to find a hotel within 50 miles of U.S Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. I bet it would be just as hard to find an available Uber to get you there before kick off.
So how does it work? More than half of the tickets will be doled out by NFL clubs, with an additional 64 tickets being given out to the nominess of the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. The remainder will be given out at NFL league events, with special consideration for local fans. Done believe me, check out this article. Good luck everybody! ha

I thought it hadn't been released yet. I thought they were waiting to release it with the 8 and X.
I thought this
was a little odd, but apparently you can get it into big trouble for having an Apple watch in the dugout. To me it makes sense that the MLB would ban phones and tablets from the dugout, but I think an Apple watch is debatable. I suppose you could use it to get an advantage like the article says. Then again, in order to use it, he'd need be connected wifi at least. I agree with the Diamondbacks, I'm sure it was just an honest mistake of forgetting to take it off before heading out to the dugout. What do you think he could have done with it to get an advantage?
Some thought they'd make their comeback, since their departure in 2012. Even though they had only two teams, there are Dodge loyalists who wanted to see the Ram hit the track. Personally, I think it's a load of drama because NASCAR still has Chevy, Ford and Toyota in the mix. Two reasons why the Dodge CEO decided to side-step the opportunity is because it's too expensive of an en devour to justify the benefits. Also, in this
article it says that they would have a hard time finding a race team with top-tier engine building capability. I guess they couldn't use the advertising.
It's a given for two men who make a career out of pummeling one another for screaming fans. It's a testosterone-charged way of making a living, as well as a name for yourself, amid the spray of blood and sweat. In the press events leading up to a fight, especially a big one, everyone is watching intently for a fight to break out, be it with words or fists. It's almost just as important as the fight itself. It builds hype and controversy, which keeps the public's attention, but when should we consider it to go too far?
Recently, there have been some pretty nasty words thrown back and forth between undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather, and UFC champion, Conor McGregor. When McGregor told Mayweather to "Dance for me, boy" Mayweather seemed to shrug it off only to call McGregor a "punk,f@@#*t, ho" during press conference. I know the whole back and forth thing is part of it, but these guys are not only fighters, they're public figures. I think they should be free to say whatever they want to each other when the cameras aren't rolling, but when they are rolling, turn the slur exchange down from 11. It just looks trashy on both sides. Thoughts?
Here, and here are a couple of articles in relation.
