Texas Rangers vs. San Francisco Giants :)

Not that we didn't have any faith in our very own Texas team, it's just that it's the WORLD SERIES for crying out loud!  Did this really happen?  Did our very own Texas Rangers really make the WORLD Freakin' SERIES?!  SERIOUSLY??!!  How incredibly EXCITING IS THAT?!  You don't have to be a crazy baseball nut to realize the importance of this accomplishment.  Never has this happened to the Texas Rangers before.. so, needless to say, both Chad and I felt DAMN lucky to have a first hand account of it.  :)  Game 4 was the game we had scored tickets to..thanks to knowing some great people...who just so happen to know some great people!  (Cara and Conner, thanks again..the seats were AWESOME! :) 

Starting the World Series off right. 
Tailgating with friends in the Rangers parking lot :)
On the menu for the afternoon:
Super delicious pork ribs, corn on the cob and pulled pork sandwiches (made by my love)
Roasted veggies, fruit salad, assorted chips and LOTS of BEER!

Even Conner was able to join in on the fun! 
After visiting with us for a while we loaded him up with goodies
to take back to the guys working the scouting room :)

Super sweet Cara, bar manager at the Moth and
her fiance Conner, scout for the Rangers :)

Conner and Cara's friends and family from Boston

Kyle, Chad's friend and former Soux Chef at the Oceanaire

Chad, happy about those Junior Mints :)

Making our way to the stadium after a few hours of tailgating

Woo Hoo!  Let's GO RANGERS!

Chad and Kyle being silly

Almost to the entry gate :)

Just happy to be at a World Series game

Sitting in the "friends and family" section :)

The sunset that night was simply GLORIOUS!

The stadium took TWO SECONDS to fill up.

And the crowd was ROARING!

The BIGGEST flag we had ever SEEN!
It was incredible the way they unraveled it without letting it touch the floor


Former President George W. Bush throwing out the first pitch

What an amazing sight...

Awww.. so in love :)
(or maybe it was just the alcohol producing those goofy looking grins of love ;)


We just so happened to be sitting literally
RIGHT BEHIND Benji Molina's family. 
How cool is THAT?!

Kinda pooped out.. Disappointed by the way the game is going. 

Kyle and Benji's brother Jose Molina, who currently plays for the Toronto Blue Jays

A sad loss for the Rangers but how can you REALLY be sad about making it to the WORLD SERIES?!
What an incredible experience for everyone, us and the team.  :)
