Holy shit, this is the dumbest thing ever. News comes this morning that Kate Middleton is in the throes of pushing a baby - a royal baby - into the world. And to celebrate (to capitalize?) on the birth of the tiny human that will be third in line for the British throne, Major League Baseball made a video of Royals players James Shields and Eric Hosmer, along with former great and current awful hitting coach George Brett, taste-testing baby food for the lil' royal. Carrots! Sweet peas! Chicken and gravy! Culinary delights!
Because our local baseball team is called the Royals, MLB thought it would be great fun to have them eat baby food as "members of the Royals family." See, it's a royal baby, and the team is called the Royals! Synergy! Please, please, please let this season be over already. (Cringeworthy, slow-mo video after the jump.)
