    profanity laden and eerie 

    Ron Washington’s Game 7 Clubhouse Speech from JoeSportsFan.com on Vimeo.

    This is Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington give a speech to his team before game 7 of the world series last month.

    it is literally Inside Baseball.

    the Rangers had just ended up on the wrong side of what many consider the greatest World Series game they’d ever seen.

    some of the reasons the Rangers lost game 6 was because of miracles delivered by he Cardinals, some had to do with mistakes made by the Rangers.

    Washington tells his pre Game 7 team how much better they are than St. Louis which is weird to listen to today because they ended up losing the game a few hours later.

    this audio tells me that baseball is everything i hoped it was: rough, cocky, and sometimes wrong.

    god bless the internet.
