Is there something special about this year's Kansas City Royals?
I don't know, but as long as they're playing I'll keep tuning in, so that tells you something right there.
I don't watch baseball, really. But I'm usually a sucker for the underdog, and if there's a bigger underdog than this light-hitting bunch, point me in their direction. After 29 years of playoff drought, the Royals topped the A's in 12 innings Tuesday night in a game that was about as good as it gets.
So, forgive me for not being much of a baseball fan. But don't hold it against me for jumping on the Royals bandwagon.
