I confess... the your mom comment was actually number 3.. I took a shot as hiattrules earlier for #2...
There was a 33-year old man who put a bid in to buy the Royals in 2000. He has been a resident of Atlanta, Georgia and heads the largest privately held, family-owned spirits company in the world - a company which in 2007 had revenue of $5.5 billion dollars. He is supposedly a Royals fan.
His name: Facundo Bacardi.
What ailes this team really isn't that hard to pinpoint. Accountability, high expectations, hard work & doing the right thing...same as in every other part of life. And those things haven't happened here for about 20 years.
Ewing Kaufmann fired Whitey Herzog because he finished in 2nd place in 1979. What would Amos Otis have done to George Brett if in 1974 he'd tried to bunt with a game on the line? This team didn't lose 10 games in a row until 1986....17 years of existence. Now, its an almost annual occurance.
No one is accountable, least of all the owner. The expectation is to get by. Is it any wonder really good players refuse to sign here? And doing the right thing is clearly optional....see the firing of Frank White.
-I know "Your mom" is a little different.. but in today's world, today's jokes.. It's not really an insult to your mom.. It's just a joke. Very hard to describe.. But I'm sorry I used it in the way I did..-Kind of like saying "your ga/y" these days.. it doesn't mean that your actually a ho/mo, it just means your stupid, an idiot, etc..
-But btw, sorry about your mom.. i realize it's hard when their laying there in the hospital and you can't do anything to help them, it tears you apart.. If anyone realized I was gone for about a week at the beginning of April.. I lost my grandpa. It's hard to go through, as that was the first person I had really lost that had been a big part of my life.. So my sincere apologies to the comment I made, I wasn't thinking at the time.. I realize the "your mom" comment is something I should only say around my close friends that I know it won't effect them.. I hope everything is going well, and she improves.. My thoughts and prayers are with your family..
PS: If you still wanna meet.. I'm down, but maybe on a different occasion and I can make it up by buying you a beer.. even though I'm not of age lol I'll give you 5 bucks
Apology accepted. I did not say much at first because I have had a very emotional week. My moms surgery went well but the recover is going to be helll on all of us, but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I apologize myself to you for how I vented tonight. What I said about how I grew up is true, I wouldn't change it for anything. Please be careful of how you approach your words on here, it's a Fun Page and we are wanting the same thing, a World Series. Take care and you can have the Beer, I will stick to my Crown. Have a good night! And thanks again for the message.
It's alright, I understand why you did it.. I would of too. But yes, fun page and World Series for sure!
-But no beer for me.. Never drank in my life.
-You have a good night as well, thanks for the message!
