Viva El Birdos, indeed
If you're in need of a chuckle today, go check out SB Nation's Cardinals blog, like these comments. But don't linger too long, you might start feeling an odd combination of sadness, bemusement and sympathy.
It's true the Royals - our beloved hometown team - have struggled as of late, what with their unfortunate draft picks, questionable trades, loony managers and enough Ken Harvey highlights to fill a vault, culminating multiple 100-loss seasons, firings, hirings, a fan walk-out and no fewer than three Royals-induced self-lobotomies and roughly 2000 aneurysms. But we at IDWT will stand by our Kansas City Royals, unwavering and unapologetic, until the tide turns and our country's great heartland can again enjoy a baseball landscape dominated by the pride of Ewing Kauffman.
