Can you believe it, Texas Rangers fans? Ron Washington is officially a World Series champion!
The 69-year-old former Rangers manager and baseball lifer finally gets to celebrate the one achievement that had previously eluded him his whole career as his Atlanta Braves defeated the Houston Astros 7-0 in Game 6 of the 2021 fall classic.
It was a triumphant moment for “Wash”, and you can be sure he was celebrating. After coming so close in 2010 and 2011 as Rangers skipper, we can only feel elated that his time has come. Arguably, no man in baseball deserved this moment than Wash.
Oh yeah, about that celebration thing… he seemed to be enjoying himself in this hilarious post-game interview with Zach Klein of WSB TV in Atlanta, to say the least!
Ron Washington is finally a World Series champion and his postgame interview should humor Texas Rangers fans everywhere
Is Ron Washington a national treasure or what? Protect this man at all costs!
Forgive us if we adopt “arse and elbows” as our new favorite saying for a little while. It’s only the right way to pay homage to a baseball legend!
You can see the pure joy in Wash’s voice and expressions during the interview, and there has to be some relief mixed in there as well. That’s the product of truly having earned something, especially when it’s been so close before.
But now? Ron Washington is a World Series champion. And every Texas Rangers fan should be absolutely ecstatic. It’s been a long time coming, and to see his career come full circle in the way it now has is completely wholesome and satisfying.
Perhaps one day, Wash will find his way back to Arlington and win the title he never could with the Rangers. For now though, we’re his biggest fans from the outside.
Congratulations Ron Washington and the 2021 World Series Champion Atlanta Braves!
