New Rangers Owner Talks Wiping Away the Hicks Stink

The Texas Rangers sit on the brink of the World Series and The New York TimesRichard Sandomir caught up with owner Chuck Greenberg for a quick Q&A. It’s a pretty bland interview – with a nice detail about fellow owner Nolan Ryan – but one part caught our eye.

Greenberg and Ryan purchased the team from Tom Hicks – the very same man involved in the Liverpool mess. Sandomir asked, “Does this season wipe away the Hicks years? The answer:

What we’ve done is wipe out a lot of myths that have persisted for a long time. There was a myth you couldn’t pitch in Rangers Ballpark. Gone. That it was too hot. Gone. That we couldn’t hit on the road. Gone. That we couldn’t win in New York. Gone. For a long time, this franchise, for one reason or another, has suffered from a case of mistaken identity.

Liverpool fans, there is hope.

HBO Goes 24/7 With the NHL

HBO, which has lost a bit of its grasp on the sports documentary market thanks to the success of ESPN’s 30 for 30 series, announced it will give the 24/7 treatment to the National Hockey League’s “Winter Classic” between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals, two teams who hate each other.

Ross Greenburg, president, HBO Sports:

“Taking our reality series 24/7 into the world of the National Hockey League is a perfect fit. The 24/7 franchise is fashioned on larger-than-life personalities, engaging storylines, and unrestricted access. With Sidney Crosby leading the Penguins and Alex Ovechkin leading the Capitals, we have all the ingredients for a dynamic show that will take viewers deep inside professional hockey and set the stage for the Winter Classic.”
