ARLINGTON, Texas — With the home team struggling, the crowd began to chant, "Let's go Rangers! Let's go Rangers!"
Down on the field, the Dallas Cowboys weren't inspired. But that rallying cry heard during their game Monday night sent a clear message: the Dallas-Fort Worth area is no longer dominated by football.
Not this fall, at least.
And certainly not this week.
The Texas Rangers may not be "America's Team," but they are American League champions, and right now that's more important.
They're bringing the World Series to Arlington this weekend, a first in the franchise's 39 years here. Fans are so giddy that not even opening the series with a pair of crushing losses in San Francisco can dampen the mood.
