"I feel like we've won the World Series," Royals GM Dayton Moore said
a few days ago. The Royals, of course, failed to even make the playoffs for the 27th straight year. But a winning season (86-76) in Kansas City must be graded on a curve, at least according to the people who believe that supporting a sports team requires decades and decades of suffering with no end in sight.
Flyover, a local T-shirt line, has printed up some shirts that nicely capture the dream-small attitude of Kansas City Royals fans. "World Series Champs," they read. "3rd Place - AL Central. 4th Place - Wild Card." Pretty great stuff. Order one here.
