Okay, same broken record. Or at least scratched, like my "Best Of Leon", Leon Russell album.You know were it keeps skipping back and forth without letting you know whats happening. And why did it have to be on the song Roll Away The Stone ?
I mean you guys know by now, how I go through these long droughts without posting and always come back with a lame," I was about to call it quits because of blah, blah, blah." Posts and this is no different.
BUT, it's still a fairly okay read.
And frankly here of late it seems like the Royals almost don't want me as a fan !
I mean the last time I was at the K, I forgot a pen for keeping score so I asked if I could have a pencil but of course they didn't have any so I had to buy a $5 pen which broke as soon as I got home.
It's been setting on my desk like that all winter collecting dust, making me question why if I would ever post again.<--- (See I told you I was going to whine and moan)

But then came the news that the Royals Caravan would be back for 2012 ! But is it anywhere near California, Mo ? NOT AT ALL. No Jefferson City, no Columbia, nope.
But hey they'll be in Springfield ! Checking out the Cardinals AA facilitates no doubt. I mean how low is that ?
And besides that when you google "2012 Royals Caravan" the first site that pops up is to build a 2012 Dodge Caravan. So I did....
What the Royals Caravan drives around when ignoring Mid-Mo

But hey at least it's not all been bad since my last post (only God knows when that was), we now have Jose Mijares, Jonathan Sanchez, and I've got to try and remember how to spell Yuniesky Betancourt again !
So it's all good....

Well at least that's what I thought until this morning on my Facebook feed I read:

Royals introduce Bruce Chen Joke of the Day promotion 
Club invites fans to submit jokes for CrownVision feature

And that had to be responded to right ? I mean first I get igonred for the Blog Your Way to the K promotion (never letting that one go) and now they want me to let Bruce use MY original stand up comedy ? For free ? Really ? I mean love isn't a one way street. I can't keep giving it out without getting some love or at least wins, back.
But maybe for Mr.Chen......
Knock, knock....

In closing I just want to say that I'll always be a Royals fan unless they do something EXTREMELY wrong & dumb, just like I'll always be a Raiders fan.
But still I had to ask myself, why keep this blog when there are so, so many better ones ? And the answer is fairly simple. Unlike everyone else I don't want to be the next Dutton, or Mellinger, or even *:gasp:*  Posnanski. I just want to be (as far as I know) the only Royals blogger with a lip ring. I just want to haunt the internet my opinion, and the occasional funny post or interview. Without really caring if it looks like a 12 year old wrote it.
So tomorrow I'll post the nomines for the 2011 Ray W awards, be sure to check it out and help decide the outcome. Spring Training and the best team the Royals have had in a long while is just around the corner...


  1. If they hadn't closes the 7th Heaven in Sedalia, I bet they would have had a stop there. We ALL would.

  2. Hey, I've got a Royal Caravan in my driveway. (grin) I'll keep readin' ya... lip-ring or not!
