Nolan Ryan....Or Old Man Potter From It's A Wonderful Life?
Watching the terrific ending of Game Six last night, we kept getting shown shots of Rangers president Nolan Ryan looking extremely annoyed in the stands.
Something about it felt familiar. And then we realized:

"Look at you. You used to be so cocky. You were going to go out and conquer the world. You once called me "a warped, frustrated, old man!" What are you but a warped, frustrated young man? A miserable little clerk crawling in here on your hands and knees and begging for help. No securities, no stocks, no bonds. Nothin' but a miserable little $500 equity in a life insurance policy.... You're worth more dead than alive!"
Where's Clarence when you need him?
