People have made a similar point already, but in terms of overall franchise success, the Rangers are basically the equivalent of the Mets. If Met fans were as arrogant about their team and other teams as Ranger fans . . . well you get the idea.
Or for whatever reason, it reminds me of Yankee fans that bring "We Believe" signs to games. Like "we believe" that outspending everyone for over a decade will eventually get us a World Series or two.
Or 5. Go Yankees!
