Two wonderful links for you…
(1) One of the premier Royals bloggers has decided to cut off his support for the team, as noted in this takedown on his blog, which is equal parts thorough and beautiful. Loved every word. We Twins fans piss and moan about Bill Smith pretty regularly, but Royals fans have it approximately a thousand times worse. If my team was that inept, I’d probably quit watching as well. Man, does that post make me thankful to not be a Royals fan. Instant perspective.
(2) I can say without an ounce of exaggeration that the now-defunct Fire Joe Morgan is my all-time favorite website — and there really is no close second — which is why the discovery that the fellas temporarily came out of retirement to guest-edit Deadspin for the day made my eyes roll back in my head with pleasure. After tucking my business into the waistband, I read every last word in every single post. Afterwards, I smoked a cigarette, took a shower, and because I’m still relatively young and virile, I went back for a second round and read them all over again. I made sweet love to Fire Joe Morgan’s writing, is what I’m trying to say here. I invite you to do the same. My god, did I enjoy that. It’s borderline unhealthy. And, sure, I’m chafing pretty bad here, but it’s totally worth it.
