Rangers Opening Day 2009
Somehow, the balloons were set loose too soon. Because of the wind, they blew around a while before they floated off.
Members of the military that recently returned from Iraq were a part of the pre-game festivities, including bringing out the huge flag.
The fly over is always my favorite part.
That would be former President George W. Bush in the red jacket. He threw out the first pitch which by the way was a strike.
Due to the wind - and lots of it - there were some problmes getting the flag rolled back up. See how small the people are down on the field compared to how high the flag is blown up.
The Rangers win! Except this is in the bottom of the 7th, not the end of the game.
