Church takes credit for Royals' 10-game win streak

There's only one possible explanation for the Royals winning 10 games in a row: divine intervention.

When we saw that the Kansas City Royals had won 10 straight games -- TEN STRAIGHT GAMES -- to vault into first, we thought it was a sign of the apocalypse. However, it turns out it was quite the opposite:

Yes, it was prayer that saved the Royals -- although, come to think of it, the Royals winning 10 straight does sound like something out of the Book of Revelation. Maybe the prayer and doomsday scenario explanations for Kansas City's baseball success aren't so far apart. One merely wonders why people didn't start praying for the Royals earlier.

Sadly, praying to conventional gods might not help much when put up against Fungo, the Unforgiving Baseball God. As Grant Brisbee writes, Fungo has already made up his mind against the happy-go-lucky Royals.
