Game 6 - The Morning After

I planned at trip to New Orleans with my sister the New Mexico Bean and Dr. Brad (her husband) a long, long time ago.  I'll admit that I never thought the Rangers would get this far in the playoffs - so I didn't worry about the timimng - silly me.

Saw the 8th and 9th inning at a place on Chartres St. last night - and then celebrated!

This morning at Cafe Beignet this is how things looked with my Yankee fan brother in law:

I still can't believe the Rangers are going to the World Series!  I still can't believe I planned a trip in the middle of the ALCS!

The hat stays on all day today.  Can't wait to get home and write some more.

GO RANGERS!!!!!! -- Marla Hooch

Game 5

To use a quote from Eric Nadel that I've heard several times during the playoffs "nothing is ever easy for these Rangers."

Clinching at home would be great.

I'm going to take a cue from Cliff Lee (see picture) and adapt the "what me worry?" attitude.

In fact, I'm not even going to blog until Sunday - no matter what happens.  Okay, I'm not going to be by a computer until Sunday night.

Keeping the faith that the next time I blog it will be about another 7 game series next week for my team.

Go Rangers!!!! -- Marla Hooch

Please remember: payback is a bitch.

Game 3

With apologies to Annie Savoy:  I believe in the Church of Cliff Lee  -- Marla Hooch

P.S. I actually missed most of the game last night (yes, I know sacrilige). There was an emergency situation - I had to take my neighbor to the hospital - turned out she was having a heart attack.   Thinking of you Joanie, hope you are better soon!
