My baseball agility is basically limited to how fast I can pull out my credit card to pay for an over-priced hot dog that tastes like extortion and guilt. My worst fear is getting on a jumbotron for the kiss cam. Or beer cam. Or fan cam. Or any sponsored cam that the local team has. I’m really selling myself well, aren’t I? In the words of Bruno Mars… stop, wait a minute.
But here’s the thing. I love the underdog. I love the emotion that Kansas City feels about the Royals. Truly they embody that it’s just not just another sport, it’s a way of life. I love that while humans can find anything to fight about, sports kind of seem like the one topic that everyone goes…okay, sure you and I disagree about everything but everyone loves the underdog so let’s not fight.
