Giving Our Thanks

The other day someone called me "the person who knows everything about the prospects" something that is so far from the truth.

What I am is blessed to know some very good and caring people who will take the time to make sure that YOU get to know about the Ranger future.

Without these people, then there is no ProspectPark and sadly no reason to get excited about the brighter tomorrow that Ranger fans are about to see.

So please let me take this time to say thank you and introduce you to the great people I have gotten to know over the years who provide us with news, information, pictures, and credentials.

Please join me in saying thank you to these great people.
