Cody Ross wins over a Ranger Fan

Longtime loyalties changed once Cody Ross joined the San Francisco Giants.  But he has a very good reason.

The address on my driver's license is Fort Worth. My ring is Aggie. And I love the Nolan.


But that's me and my family riding the San Francisco Giants bandwagon through Rangers country.

I can tell you exactly when we turned black-and-orange: Aug. 22, 2010.




That instantly made me a Giants fan. Dropped the Marlins like last week's tuna.

I lived in Ft. Worth for a fair amount of time and graduated high school from there, but I will never, ever, drop the Marlins.

But this isn't about me.

It goes on.

Cody is, if I may brag for a moment, a member of the family. Not blood-related but marriage-related. My stepmother is Cody's aunt.

While the above Ranger fan faces no quandary--Cody is, after all, family--I do.  I like the Rangers and I am always happy when they do well and normally would be for them.  But we are talking Cody here.  

Truthfully, I just want Cody, Cantu and Treanor to do well and then let the chips fall where they may.  It should be a good series.
