G42: Rangers walk off with win against Yankes, 4-3

Too busy on Monday morning to write about this, but man. Walk off home run against the Yankees. What a sweet ending! And I was there to see it. Really REALLY awesome! Anyone catch Kevin Mench freaking out on the field dancing and whatnot when we won? It was quite amusing. This picture about sums it up for me:
