Kansas City...They've gone about as far as they can go

Posted at 11:44 AM on April 26, 2007 by Chris Dall

Think Royals fans are excited about their team this year? Maybe not, but at least they have 14 more games against the Twins.

It’s sad to see what’s happened to the Royals. They were such a fixture in the late 1970s and 1980s, with players like George Brett, Willie Wilson, Dan Quisenberry, Amos Otis, and my personal favorite, U.L. Washington, the man who always had a toothpick in his mouth. They also had that cool waterfall behind the centerfield fence.

I was a fan of the Royals from afar, and was crushed by their loss to the Phillies in the 1980 World Series. You might also remember that as the series where George Brett had to leave a game due to hemorrhoid pain.

Give the state of the current team, I’m sure Royals fans remember the hemorrhoids incident with great fondness.
