Whitehouse Wildcat and Texas Rangers Fans are a Little Sad Today
Tuesday morning (November 20) has turned into a sad day for Texas sports fans. ESPN reported that Texas Rangers 3rd baseman, Adrian Beltre, has announced his retirement. As a Rangers fan, the last seven seasons with Adrian in the line-up has been a blast.
He had so much fun playing the game and it showed on the field. Whether it was he and shortstop Elvis Andrus messing with each other in the infield or the great exchanges between Beltre and his great friend, Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez. I will miss those exchanges.
Adrian ends his career (Los Angeles Dodgers, Seattle Mariners, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers) with 3,166 hits (16th all time), 477 home runs, 1,707 RBIs and a career batting average of .286. The Rangers did go to back to back World Series in 2010 and 2011 but lost in both. Beltre will be in the hall of fame soon, however.
Last night, Patrick Mahomes lead his Kansas City Chiefs team into Los Angeles to take on the Rams. This game lived up to every ounce of hype. In the end, the Rams won 54-51.
Mahomes finished with 478 yards passing, six touchdowns and three interceptions.
We are sad the Whitehouse Wildcat couldn't get the win but we are so proud of how he has handled his stardom so far. He goes out every week and puts on an amazing show. If mistakes are made, he owns up to them. He compliments his teammates. He's listening to his coach, Andy Reid, and becoming one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
Keep it up Patrick. All of East Texas is proud of and rooting for you.
