K.C.’s Comet

zack greinke.jpgLike Halley’s and Hale-Bopp, every great once in a while a comet will pass through the Kansas City Royal’s universe, causing the hapless west Missouri team to be relevant, if only briefly.

Such cases have been well documented: In 1985, Don Denkinger handed the World Series Championship directly to the Royals.  Some twenty years later, Hall of Famer George Brett revealed to the world his celebratory penchant for soiling himself.

And now, in 2009, Royals ace Zack Greinke hopes to snatch the Cy Young Award from big name, big money pitchers from big markets.

When Greinke wins on Tuesday it will be an historic event.  For the first time ever in the history of the franchise, the Royals will be relevant for something other than a bunch of s***.

And that, dear readers, is called crawling out of the gutter… where they will quickly return to on Wednesday.

Hate me ‘cuz I prey on the weak, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

I think he’ll win too, but I wouldn’t exactly be crushed if they gave it to CC.

And I had never seen that youtube on George Brett! Although I could have done away with all the detail.. ewwwk. No wonder all the guys were trying to get away from him.

XCICIX — Fair enough. I was talking about the Yankees and Tigers though.
Emmy — Jury’s still out if they should be called a “team” or not. There is one star in West Missouri. He’s the only one…. unless you count Jayhawks basketball… but then again, that’s in Kansas.
Emma — Gross, isn’t it? So sick and yet so funny… hahaha.
