playoffs

If Texas wins the American League Title against Detroit, which it looks like they may at 2 and 0, then they will either play Milwaukee or St. Louis in the World Series. In light of the new PBS miniseries on Prohibition that aired last weekend, it is interesting that Arlington, home of the Rangers, was completely dry when I was a kid, and now you can only buy beer there. St. Louis and Milwaukee have different reputations.

Apparently however, beer was allowed at Arlington Stadium even in the ’70’s, as this Wiki article on the “10 Cent Beer Night” riot details. Unbelievable.
