SI.com: Royals fan auctions 25 years of devotion for $278.47

SI.com - MLB - Had enough: Royals fan sells loyalty on eBay - Wednesday May 3, 2006 10:44PM:
"KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals lost yet again Tuesday, a 4-1 setback in Detroit. With the worst record in the majors, who could fault a fan for taking a nose dive from the bandwagon -- much less selling his allegiance?

Chad Carroll auctioned off 25 years of loyalty to the Royals on eBay on Tuesday, along with jerseys, hats, baseballs and other memorabilia.

And in a spate of irony, faithfulness to a club with one of the smallest payrolls in Major League Baseball sold for a paltry $278.47...."
Ouch.

I saw this article in the KC Star today. (He writes looking at his collection of Royals baseball cards, wondering how much money they might bring.)

Hopefully more than $278.14

But you wouldn't would you? Huh? Huh?

Could you face Susan?

Actually, as I write this, the Royals are ahead 1-0 in the bottom of the 5th. I'd rather not see them even with a share of the record for most consecutive losses on the road.

Well, 9 innings of good defense and one inning of adequate offence, and the Royals pulled it out.

No. I won't sell them. They remind of better days, before the dark times... long ago ... far far away... I am waiting for the return of the Bretti, bat sabres in hand.
