20 Reasons The Kansas City Royals Are Taking Over The World

We had to wait 29 years since our last playoff berth! Blue freakin' October fever is sweeping the nation, baby!

Posted on

1. When the Royals win playoff games, puppies get adopted.

He may be big. He may be slow. But if we catch ya napping at 2nd base, Country Breakfast done gonna drive the bus!

4. It's pronounced GOURD-ON

Oh you say you can't see because you're blinded by all of Alex Gordon's gold gloves?

6. But our fastest guy is 5'7" and looks like he's 16 years old.

Rookie Terrance Gore does one thing: run the bases. You better pay attention because if you look away, he’ll round 3rd for home! No really...that happened.

Half the time we don't know what he's saying, but we don't care because if you try to run on him, you can just set your booty back down.

9. We endured the Ken Harvey years.

He was an All-Star once. But he also got ran over by a tarp.

11. We have a theme song.

13. Bill Butler has his own BBQ sauce.

Kansas City is the BBQ capital of the world. Our DH Butler has his own sauce. Oh, and the proceeds go to charity no less! CLASSY DUDE.

14. Speaking of the BBQ sauce.

In 2013, after a dramatic win 1B Eric Hosmer got drenched in some of Billy's Rally Sauce, but unfortunately to the folks watching on TV (including his family) it looked more like he got capped in the face.

16. This was SP Jason Vargas' reaction after Lorenzo Cain blew his mind with an other-worldly catch in the outfield.

17. We have the talented artist Chris Sembower posterizing the crap out of our players.

Is that not the coolest thing ever? That's 1B Eric Hosmer aka the nicest dude in the MLB. After clinching a spot in the 2014 ALCS, he went and partied with fans at McFadden's Bar in downtown Kansas City. AND PAID FOR EVERYBODY'S DRINKS. SERIOUSLY, HE DID THAT. WOW.

19. Did I mention Royals fans are insane?

Yes, they are wearing cat singlets. Yes, the other dude is a horse. Yes, this is normal for Kauffman Stadium and Royals fans. We love to be creative and fun!
