Why does it work? The Texas Rangers have lost two games to the San Francisco Giants, and the third game of the World Series is coming up in Arlington, Texas. Normally, football is king in Texas (the two sports in Texas are football and spring football practice). Coming off a 9-0 loss, the Rangers are in deep trouble — third and long.
It works on a couple of levels, but I'm not sure they need the comma.
