Ranger's Game Tonight

We had a special day today. We were invited out to watch our Texas Rangers take-on the Boston Red Sox. Our friends, Jamie and Melanie Adams (who were also co-chairs for the Pickin' for Premies" event on Labor Day) invited us out to their suite at the ballpark in Arlington to share a fun day of baseball and meeting some really neat and fun people.

The Rangers lost to the Red Sox, but after what happen to Tom Brady today, well I guess the New Englanders needed some good fortune.

To be perfectly honest, I didn't see much of the game, as I was mesmerized by all of Jamie's cool sports memorabilia and talking to the people who were there watching the game.

About the 4th inning, the Rangers TV people came by and interviewed us, so if you were watching the game, you saw Jessie and the family on TV. It was nice to tell everyone, how much we appreciated the Rangers organization, and about Saltalamachia and Wilson visiting Jessie when she was out in Baltimore for surgery. The Rangers are a top-notch organization, and Jamie, Melanie and Family are Top-Notch people. They work for many charities, and are real, compassionate, down-to-earth, caring people. Next time you see Jamie and Melanie out at the Aledo Atletic Youth Baseball Fields, or around Aledo, or Fort Worth, take some time to get to know them.

Here's the kids taking over Jamie's office. In one corner of the office, he has a signed guitar from George Strait, a picture of his family on Air-Force Once, and autographed picture of Tom Landry and Roger Staubach. Not once did he tell the kids "Be careful, don't touch that."

Here's Matt and I watching the game. The balcony overlooks center field, or you can watch the game indoors in the A/C.

Here's the family (Kristi's taking the picture) with country star Sonny Burgess. He was a guest of the Adam's today too, and a really nice guy who I enjoyed talking to. He was also one of the country stars who played the Pickin' for Preemies event last week. Super guy with a great heart. Check out his music at

If you get a chance, read about Jamie and his family in the August 2008 issue of Fort Worth Magazine. . Get a chance to know one of Aledo's good characters.

Have a great week next week, and God Bless,
