Birthday Blues

Today is a natural "77" for the Old Pundit. The Rangers have played thirty games on my birthday since that famous day 77 years ago. Their record is 14-11-4, basically a .500 team. So they are playing up to par right now. Actually they are playing below that number as they truly fail to compete every night and their play lacks any semblance of intensity and tenacity except on some rare occasions. So we shall suffer through another year of mediocrity and failure to play up to expectations. But it's not new to me and maybe I've been around them too long and the cynicism is hard to dismiss. Without a complete sweep of the management team this season is another one that will end in disappointment. Happy Birthday Pundit!

Returning HeroesThere is a group in Texas trying to build a support center called the Warrior and Family Support Center and they need help and money to build a new center for returning injured veterans. If you can take a little time from your busy Christmas and holiday schedules and send them a check, I'm sure they would appreciate it greatly.
