No television, only a small radio tuned to an unknown station. Sitting on the back porch of a ranch house with a couple of friends in the middle of nowhere, but near Centerville. Eric Nadel's call and sound of crickets and frogs will be a fond memory for the rest of my days. I'm almost glad we couldn't watch it on tv. There was just something very special about the whole scene.

Bowling alley bar, loud and crowded! Hat a great seat at the bar with friends! Stayed for the whole game!

What a fun time! I'll never forget it.

at home, had moved from my little office tv to the bigscreen with yvonne for the final inning...flipped back & forth from tbs to ch. 8 for the post-game interviews...i swear i felt like i was tripping on something from my college days...they might win the world series this year, they might win it again but like baseball fans in other cities have said there isn't anything that compares to seeing your home team just being there for the first time....

No, I did not see the game in person because I was still at Woodstock.

Local bar by where I live, which was PACKED, with a big group of friends....right after the game I stood up on my bar stool and proceded to get the entire place chanting "Lets go Rangers, Lets Go!!!!"

Good times had by all!!!

We were at home; my husband was getting ready for work, lamenting that he would have to listen to the rest of the game on the radio.  I watched from our TV and could not help but well up with tears of joy.

No really. I heard it happened, but I don't know when the game was.

I was at Humperdinks in Addison at a Ranger watching party. I did get to see game 2 a few days earlier, but I sure wish I had been The Ballpark for game 6. Man, do I wish I had been there.

At the Copperas Cove vs A&M Consolidated football game, which we (Consol) won.  Got home in time to see the ninth inning. 

Happy happy joy joy....

I was at a great bar in FW, the Capital Bar, with 10+ of my wonderful, "old" sorority sisters from TCU for our reunion weekend. We watched the last 4 innings on a big screen, then went outside to hear the most fun band in the Metroplex (now that Rusty doesn't play anymore). It was one of the most fun nights I've had in a long time....old friends and lots to celebrate!

Oh PS, my son saw the game in person. Just a few rows behind home plate, behind a row of Giants scouts!

Watched the game quietly at home, with my 5-year-old daughter - who kept asking questions about strike zones and such.

The kid is going to be fine.
