There's No Magic Number In Football

I'm sitting here watching the Rangers in the top of the 11th at 12:12am in a tied ballgame versus the Halos and realized the above.  There's really no magic number in other sports, such as those that have owners whose names rhyme with Berry Bones.  If there is it's only with one or maybe two games left.  Whatever. 

Don't get me started about the Rangers' every away game being on the West coast by virtue of the their division mates.  It sucks.  It sucks for TV viewership/ratings.  It sucks for their travel.  It sucks for their DFW fans who actually want to watch their away games.  There needs to be a massive realignment of the AL/NL and the individual divisions to rectify this.  But, as usual, I digress.

I know no one will read this but, going into tonight's game the Rangers' magic number is five.  Wow.  Who would have thunk it?  The other sports team going right now is worried about losing two in row.  Cry me river.  Unlike other sports, baseball's season is really, really, really long.  A guy in another sport misses a game or two?  So what?  Talk to me when a guy like Jedi Josh misses 15 with broken ribs.

See you Rangers faithful in the playoffs (knock on wood).  Looks like this is the year they make their way out the wilderness of baseball futility and frustration.  I'm knocking on wood again because the magic number is still five and you never know.

Remember, there's a magic number in baseball.  Magic.  In other sports, for example, there's a hail Mary.  What?  What does the Virgin Mary have to do with sports?  That's just weird.  And probably sacrilege.  Give me a suicide squeeze any day.

Bottom of 12 coming up against the Halos.  Rangers up 1.  See you in the playoffs (knock on wood again).
