I Can't Think Of A Worse Indignity Right Now

In that ninth inning tonight, as the Red Sox went meekly 1-2-3, I was actually seeing Kansas City Royals fans waving brooms at the Red Sox and their fans in Kauffman Stadium.

It's worth remembering that:
The Royals are 41-73, the worst team in all of baseball.
The only other teams KC swept this season are the Pirates and Indians. Very dubious company.
They started a pitcher who was 2-7 this season tonight.

Their fans were waving brooms at us when it ended.

It's time to pull out the 2004 World Series video and get a stiff drink.

I need them both right now.

John, if you're still up, email me asap at mattysox9@yahoo.com...the drinks will be stiff, and the team's backbone limp...I am so depressed right now...

Well, they were 38-73 before we came to town. As Papi said...We shoulda stayed home! And home is where we are. Have a great weekend.

Sorry, Matty, I turned in early last night. I would have enjoyed your company by email....

Have a good weekend too, Peter. Let's hope for a sweep over the O's...
