Coca Cola and Rangers Baseball: Life Tastes Good!

My first job was selling Cokes at the old Arlington Stadium, the original home of the Texas Rangers.  Three of my high school buddies and I would carpool out the turnpike, put on our orange stadium uniforms, then hit the stands to make some spending money.  Watching this two year run from the Rangers has been […]
