Ranger Picks 2024

Last year, I studiously kept a spreadsheet updated with their weekly MLR predictions from 5 New England FreeJacks fans and 1 Old Glory DC fan as a self proclaimed Jacks Rangers Show super fan. After each match I’d then update the spreadsheet with the wins, recalculate results then myself and TJRS would share them to the FreeJacks fan base.

We ran an experiment in the post season for more fans to participate in these weekly predictions and had quite a few entries without too much promotion.

So for MLR 2024, I’m pleased to announce that we’re going bigger than ever. We now have a website and will be taking predictions from any MLR fan via a Google Form. The form will be refreshed each Monday in the regular season.

Set a reminder and remember to visit https://rangerpicks.micro.blog/ every Monday in the MLR regular season!

Welcome to MLR, Charlotte!

We had so much fun at Bananaball World Tour season 1. Tickets for Fenway in Season 2 already acquired! Will the Banana Bandit return? Time will tell!

Please help me get over the fact that Abi is in high school already by supporting her volleyball team and get some delicious cookie dough


Abi in volleyball jersay #14


Busy day yesterday. Beach volleyball group lessons for Abi and Arianna… then Free Jacks final regular season home match - Arianna loves leading cheers from the stands and joining in with the try celebration #Huzzah and the kids got on the jumbotron! Then summer league volleyball for Abi. At some point we ate, but I’m not sure when or what!IMG 1899IMG 1904IMG 1914

📺 Time to watch a docuseries on the New England FreeJacks

We can’t wait for March 11th! Would not be disappointed by either another “snow bowl”, or if it was slightly warmer this year… #letsride #fillthefort

RSVP’d for the next Free Jacks home game. This time I’ll have company - excited that my Father In-Law has joined the Founding Members!

Had an amazing time at the Worcester Red Sox (WooSox) last night with Alex. Looking forward to going back many more times. IMG 3697 IMG 3701IMG 3719

I’m proud to say I didn’t need this sign this weekend but it’s always useful to have a reminder. Especially when the losses are heartbreakers.

Just RSVP’d for the next @NEFreeJacks game. Let’s go!

Looks like this will be a messy 🏉 game. Let’s go Free Jacks #LetsRide

Great start for the south shore Rox. Now #readytoride @NEFreeJacks

Looking forward to a great season of ⚾️ with these 3 friends.

Today is a sports day. First up - opening day for South Shore Rox ⚾️ then this afternoon #ReadyToRide with the Free Jacks 🏉

Just RSVP’d for the Free Jacks home opener. It’s so close!! 🏉

Interesting new MLR 🏉 laws. I’m skeptical about 2 of these (under the post and red card) but excited to see how it shakes out.
