The Royals have now lost every home game that they have played. They are on a 12-game losing streak. There have only been 20 12-game losing streaks since the strike, and five of those have belonged to the Royals. In response, this guy has decided he'd rather read than suffer through another loss by his team. I think that a lot could go wrong for our beloved Mudville Nine before we're reading at ballgames. So whenever life gets you down Mr. Brown, or things seem hard or tough, just remember that we're not the Royals.
