The (Former) Senators Win the Pennant!

Given that I’ve made this Texas Rangers/Washington Senators something of a gimmick over the last week, there’s no reason to stop now. Congratulations to the former Washington Senators on toppling the defending champion Yankees and hoisting the franchise’s first ever American League pennant with a 6-1 victory in Game Six last night. The Rangers head to their first World Series and will face the winner of the San Francisco and Philadelphia NLCS on the road in Game 1 later next week.

  1. Why any Washingtonian would take joy in the Texas Rangers winning is beyond me. That’s like rooting for the ex-wife who left you for another man.

  2. @WFY Part of the post was because I knew you’d chime in, promise. I did it for you.

    Actually, I did it just for the gimmick that I started a week ago.

  3. I can’t imagine the people of Boston were happy when the Redskins won all of their championships (including the 1937 one, the year after they left Boston) and I know Baltimoreans take no joy in the success of the Indy Colts.
