The Blonde Side: Texas Pride P.S.

Last weekend the Rangers faced the Cubs at the Ballpark in Arlington and guess who I found?  The one and only Shawn Marion (#31 – Dallas Mavericks) sitting first base side in the third row (check it out below). You never know who you may run into at Rangers game these days (other than me since I am ALWAYS there)!

The Blonde Side: Texas Pride

Marty B at FC Dallas game

Lucky for me, Dallas is swarming with pro sports teams.   We have FC Dallas (MLS), the Dallas Stars (NHL), the Dallas Mavericks (NBA), the Texas Rangers (MLB), the Rough Riders (MiLB-Texas Affiliate), and of course. . .the one and only Dallas Cowboys (NFL).

The athletes that make up these teams are from all over the country (better yet, the world), but it is their support for the surrounding teams which really sets Texas apart from other areas (must be the southern hospitality y’all!).

In the off-season, Martellus Bennett (#80 – Tight End), reps his FC Dallas jersey with pride.  You can always catch him at the home games at Pizza Hut Park.   Marty B is VIP no matter what field he is on.  He even has a custom designed FC Dallas, #80, Bennett jersey (big surprise)!

Miles Austin (#19 – Wide Receiver) and Kevin Ogletree (#85 – Wide Receiver) were often spotted courtside at the Mavs games this season.  Even Tony Romo (#9 – Quarterback) has been known to attend a game or two!

Derek Holland in his Felix Jones jersey

Derek Holland (#45 LHP – Rangers) and Tommy Hunter (#35 RHP – Rangers) came out to support the ‘Boys in Blue last season (despite the fact Hunter is a die-hard Colts fan) and I’m sure we will be seeing a lot of them this year. (I wonder if Felix Jones would rock a #45 jersey to a Rangers game to return the favor?!)   This duo of pitching excellence is also known to hit up the Mavs games in their spare time, while Holland is quick to support the Dallas Stars as well!

Jason Williams (#58 – Linebacker) and KO (again!) were at the ballpark to see the Rangers beat up the Royals with a 13-12 win over KC.   The Rangers have been struggling to get the bats moving this season, but could the pre-game presence of the ‘Boys on the field have started a fire?  I think so! (Just look below at the pics Williams took from the game!)

The fact that the Dallas-area athletes support each other helps bring the fans and the pro sports community together.   I love how these men are truly appreciative and dedicated to playing for our teams, and they enjoy showing a little TEXAS PRIDE!
