Last summer, Stacey from Camden Chat posed as a Royals fan during a game at Fenway Park. After reading Nick Bromberg’s piece on Big League Stew, I feel like posing as a Royals fan as well. Perhaps I already am, given the similarities between the laments of Royals and Orioles fans.
Here’s an excerpt:
But it’s only the middle of May and it already feels like the season has been dragging on for months. The Royals are 11-23 — 11 games behind the Twins in the AL Central — and as a Kansas City resident my whole life, I’ve even taken the drastic step of debating of giving up my fandom.
Crazy, I know, but how can a rational baseball fan like myself root for a team with the following realities staring me straight in the face?
Raise your hand if you can relate to the phrases “it already feels like the season has been dragging on for months” and “taken the drastic step of debating giving up my fandom.”
