Jayson Stark of ESPN.com on the futility of the Texas Rangers:
Only one other franchise in any major North American professional sport — the Minnesota Vikings — has been in existence as long as this franchise without winning at least one championship? (The Vikings, coincidentally enough, have also been around for 51 years — but are not one win away.)
Few talk about how the Texas Rangers haven’t won a World Series. I am rooting for them just for this reason alone. How could you not be?
