Rangers hold breath on Beltre, Hamilton, Olt injuries

Rangers closer Nathan pays off bet as Romo

Texas Rangers closer Joe Nathan can do a pretty good impersonation of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. The pitcher and New York Giants fan had no choice.

Tony Romo, Two-Sport Shining Star – KSK Kontent Klearinghouse

Anyway, the stunt came about as a result of a bet that Nathan, a Giants fan, made...
