A Short Note On The Royals

It's the sentence we never thought we'd live to hear. But there it was, just sitting there in the notes column of the Kansas City Star's Royals gamer on Sunday. It is at once awesome in its randomness, and frightening for the images it conjures. Even more terrifying: we know that someone, somewhere, has pictures. Well, here it is.

The last living munchkin from "The Wizard of Oz" threw a surprisingly good first pitch before Sunday's game — and won a backpack during the fifth inning dance-off.

And there you have it; the Royals have officially become a minor league team. Next we expect to see kids chasing a greased pig around Kauffman Stadium duing the seventh-inning stretch.
