Dirk Nowitzki's Final Assist This Summer to ... Michael Young

His Flamingo Fadeaway on the mound with a basketball was funny. And his cartoonish, exaggerated Max Patkin-like delivery was funnier.

Dirk Nowitzki on Friday night was the best thing on a Rangers' pitching mound in a while.

Only thing better would've been if Michael Young's leaping catch wouldn't have saved Captain from taking one in the horse schnoz.

You commentators are so cool. I wish I could have your day job of sports writing, oh, wait, you're not!

Although it was nice seeing Dirk there Friday night, I was much more happy to see who followed him on the mound and was pretty dang dominant..Get em Harrison! RW doesn't have much time to bandwagon the Redshoes this year..all the hip-Douche midget Uptown-ers are saying that the Mavs and The Fail are the shiznit right now...while ice-ing each other and giving reach arounds. Keep Effing that chicken, little buddy!

You might want to go to the doctor, RW. You've clearly had your Mavs erection for longer than 4 hours.

Are you going to be writing about Dirk's summer basketball adventures in Germany too RW?? I would almost rather you bash the Rangers than continue the Mavs hardon you have. By the way super huge Mavs fan have you figured out who the '88 Mavs coach is yet????http://blogs.dallasobserver.co...

What kind of post is this?? This happened 3 days ago and was already covered by every other sports media outlet and even the front page of the DMN by Saturday. If I'm your boss I'm calling you into the office immediately for this mailed-in, give-up, regurgitated, sorry excuse to meet a quota post.

Does the Fan even send anyone out to cover the games anymore?

Is Richie getting paid anything to help WTRef.com promote itself by misappropriating copyrighted broadcasts?

I can't wait until the Rangers start winning again and I get to read your lies about how you never lost faith and you stick with them when they lose.

Amazing work finding a YouTube link, writing four sentences, and a headline. And tags. And no misspellings or erroneous coaches. And good analysis of the physics of the ball that a layman would've thought wasn't anywhere close to a vector that would've nailed a mascot.

Keep up that amazing effort level and soon you'll make Bob Sturm look like Sean Salisbury's dong.

Pretty sure Arnie was doing all post-games last year with Dolgen, but ESPN and it's weak signal carries it now. Pretty sure they covered all the Mavs post-games in the playoffs as well, can't expect anyone to take up the whole season, (unless you lack any late-night programming).

you mean like a post Rangers wrap up show even?Methinks no. I mean, that would interrupt an Arnie show, and you would never want that. Somehow the little Ticket, a station that would never be able to afford to carry Rangers games or Mavs games, does post games for both.

Well, even though at times I've been critical, I do dig me some RAGE.
