The Best Story You'll Hear Involving Rhett Miller, The Texas Rangers and The DOMAs.
"No," he told us, "it's totally true."
For a while there, though, it seemed as if he'd be able to make both. His band's set in Deep Ellum wasn't set to start until 7:30 p.m.; Game Six of the American League Championship Series at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington was set to start at 7:05, putting Rhett's anthem take right around the clock strike of 7.
"There was even talk of a helicopter," Miller told us backstage.
Alas, that much never happened.
In other words: The DOMAs did something the Tigers couldn't do on Saturday night; they beat out the Rangers.
Face, Rangers. Face.
Also: Congrats on making it to the World Series.
