KC Royals fans are enduring their second consecutive off day after getting a tantalizing taste of baseball way back on April 3 and April 5. It’s cruel and unusual punishment from major league baseball.
Ok, maybe I’m a Kansas City Royals geek that doesn’t have a life. But, really, giving me two measly games after FIVE FREAKING MONTHS without baseball and then following it with a 48-hour desert of dead air before taking on the Twins is almost worse than the off season. It’s sort of like giving an addict a sip of alcohol and then throwing out the bottle.
During the offseason, I’m at least resigned to life without KC Royals baseball. But, to tell me that baseball is back and then denying me Kansas City Royals baseball for two days after watching the championship flag raising on Sunday and the ring ceremony on Tuesday is just too cruel for words.
Right now, I’m sitting in my house all dressed up in my KC Royals jersey and hat with no place to go.
I’ve been stood up by major league baseball.
Yes, I know I could watch another team. But, really, I would think a family product like major league baseball shouldn’t be encouraging infidelity. I suppose I could watch the Oakland A’s and White Sox, but former Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler isn’t even playing. Ben Zobrist is scheduled to play for the Cubs against the Diamondbacks, but he was a mere KC Royal by proxy. I’m not sure a rental really counts, even if he set a playoff doubles record and helped win a World Series.

God forbid I watch the first round of the Masters. I mean, GOLF? It’s not even a sport. You can play golf without breaking a sweat. I love Kansas City Icon Tom Watson. Really. But when you can come within an eyelash of winning a major event at age 59 (finished tied for first in the 2009 Masters before losing in a playoff), it’s not a sport.
Advertisers call golf a sport so they can convince middle aged men with a lot of spending money that they’re athletes.
I suppose I could get a subscription to MiLB.tv, but the minor league teams just aren’t the same as the KC Royals. I’m just not comfortable cheering for guys wearing the wrong laundry.
Just how are Kansas City Royals fans supposed to get through the workday in spring without baseball to look forward to at night. About the only solace I have right now is that I only have to endure another 28 hours before I get my next fix.
Go, KC Royals! Defend the crown in 2016.
