The Dallas Morning News is running an article in Tuesday’s paper with a few quotes from me. The piece is about fans’ feelings going into Game 5. They emailed me early on Monday and asked me a few questions. I’m quoted three times. Twice at the end of the article, and once further up.
The one in the middle I wanted to comment on. While they weren’t exactly wrong in using what I said, I tried to be funny with it, I guess they edited that out for brevity. Here’s what appears in the paper:
“My thoughts on our chances are basically two words: Cliff Lee,” said Joe Siegler, a longtime Rangers fan who runs the fan website Rangerfans.com.
What I really said was this:
“My thoughts on our chances tomorrow are basically two words. Lee & Cliff. Feel free to rearrange them in any order you like. ;)”
Check out the article. Hopefully we get to move on. Also what I was trying to say with my quotes at the end was that it seemed like the mind lock on getting to the ALCS is a bigger deal than the mind lock from the past with the Yankees. I’m not sure that came out right.
