As the Texas Rangers, one win away from their first World Series title, packed Tuesday for the return trip to St. Louis, a message of encouragement arrived from a big guy who should know.
"Huge win. One suit. One shirt. One tie. Go Rangers," read the note, via Twitter, from the Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki.
Do it the way the Mavericks did it, Dirk was urging his favorite baseball team.
The "one suit, one shirt" packing tip became the Mavericks' motivation last June, when they returned to Miami with a similar 3-2 series lead in the NBA Finals.
