Oh yes, we've been to RR a couple times when they've played the Memphis Redbirds. Great ballpark!

I've been a Rangers fan since '72. So nice to finally see them come together. Also, if you're ever up in the Frisco area, it's another really nice ballpark (along the lines of Round Rock).

I'd say the same for the Stars, but they're the only NHL team in Texas, so they're cool.
I always wondered about this. In HD on Channel 150 on TWC they show the primary, and then secondary on Stuff TV is SD?

How do they decide to show what to show on Fox Sports Southwest?

It's simple. They have an order of priority. For San Antonio, it's... Spurs, Rangers, Astros.

This is most likely because the Rangers have a new, big ol' contract with Fox Sports, and the Astros will have their own joint channel with the Rockets next season: Comcast Sports Net - Houston.

Because of this, us Astros fans in San Antonio get screwed this season.

Well I think the disastros screwed the fans but getting their own channel, well I will miss watching them get to 100 losses again.
