'Strip-Mall Wormhole': Toronto Columnist Slams Arlington

    As the Texas Rangers get set to play the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League Division Series, a Toronto columnist is picking a fight with Arlington.

    Cathal Kelly, a sportswriter at the Globe and Mail, took a shot at the home of the Rangers, calling it the "strip-mall wormhole you pass through on the way to Fort Worth."

    Kelly goes to write, "They have the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame, but Arlington is mainly the place to which Dallas outsources its live baseball and football."

    "Three hours before a game in Arlington, there's no one around. An hour after a game, it returns to that state," Kelly wrote.
