I would like to think that I am the world’s biggest Rangers’ fan. My passion is no match, however for the Cohen clan.
If you happened to be watching NBCDFW 5 news on Opening Day, you might have seen former ourtowner Shirley Cohen, 88, attending her 42nd consecutive Texas Rangers opener. Shirley and her family, are longtime season ticket holders and arguably the world’s biggest Rangers fans.
“I’m hoping for the best. I have a stack of rally flags like this,” Shirley told NBCDFW’s Scott Gordon, gesturing with her hands. “And I’m not throwing them away until we win the World Series,” she quipped! You can still catch Shirley’s clip online at http://www.nbcdfw.com/blogs/red-fever/Rangers-Lose-to-Phillies-on-Opening-Day-253278411.html.
