Nolan Ryan....Or Old Man Potter From It's A Wonderful Life?

Categories: Sports

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:

It was Old Man Potter from It's A Wonderful Life!

"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?

Never liked Rollie Pollie Nollie.

It's the weather.  He only looks like that when he's freezing.  He looked much more content in Dallas where he didn't have to wear a jacket.


My Dad looks just like Nolan.  In Alvin he even got stopped once.

Funny thing is they were born on the same day of the same year.

Must be something in the water.


In other news, Ron Washington was fired after last nights 10th inning debacle. Interim Manager, Nolan Ryan, will be taking over managerial duties immediately.


Maybe, but I bet if someone charges the mound, Old Man Ryan will still drop a bitch like he's hot.
