Another Opening Day!  Also, my very first crab boil - I cheated and practiced the night before.  This was a great
tailgate. Everyone, and I mean everyone showed up to the tailgate, Mercedes, Bill, Kim, Laura, Holly, Ozzy, Jon...
it was epic.  There was so much riding on this game.  The 2012 Rangers had led wire to wire and come up short,
collapsing in spectacular fashion.  Anticipation was high then, that the Rangers show they were still a contender
especially after losing Josh Hamilton and Napoli to other teams.  Josh, ended up with the hated Angels and said
some very Josh things that got this crowd so worked up - to describe the boos rained upon that man would be
nearly impossible.  In 2015, he admitted how much it actually hurt him to hear all that, something you usually
don't hear athletes admit.  The Rangers beat the Angels that day - it was satisfying - and this was a good start to a
new year.
