A CPA in the KC area, I've lived in KC my whole life and bleed Royal Blue. Long for a return to the glory days. The past 10 years have been pretty tough, but I'm thinking we're on our way.

Hot Corner...What to Do?

I'm really stupefied that Mouse Droppings hasn't yet been sent down. He is absolutely killing this team right now, and I think some time in Omaha might help him get back on track. Apparently, the R...

The Idiot's Guide to Royals Contention in 2013

Worst to First?

I've been thinking a bit about this year's Royals and what looks like another inevitable last-place finish in 2012, and wondering if we're reaching a critical point in this team's life cycle. As...

How Embarrassing is it Going to Be?

With the stink of the last two games still freshly in the air, and the team (in my warped mind, anyway) barreling towards a 100-loss epic failure of a season, I'm curious as to what some of the...

OT - Why America Is Great (From the tencap tennis website) Interesting Facts About Tennis Balls 300 million tennis balls are manufactured each year. US Open: There are 60,000 Wilson tennis balls used during the US Open and they are donated for community/youth programs. Wimbledon: The 36,000 tennis balls used at Wimbledon are used afterwards as homes for Harvest Mice http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10221571 (check out the pics!) Australian Open: Wilson supplies more than 4,000 dozen tennis balls for use during the Australian Open. Used balls are sold on site. In America, despite being a bunch of greedy bastards, we find ways to donate to those less fortunate. In England, their primary concern is field mice, and in Australia, they try to get their greedy hands on as much $$$ as possible. Not to mention, the US Open is the ONLY Grand Slam event that guarantees equal prize money to men and women.

Speculation that resident Golden Boy Jack Z. is on the hot seat. Does this sound familiar? New GM gets team to respectability, then "goes for it" and falls flat on his face, with a complete rebuilding maybe needed....it ain't as easy as it looks, folks.
