Baseball is close and the Royals hit a homer already.

Last year, if you saw the Royals billboard of James Shields and Salvador Perez you had to be impressed.  You couldn't drive by this and not get pumped up for the upcoming season.


This year, they have outdone themselves with this new billboard of Alex Gordon.  Maybe this will be the year the Royals get back to the playoffs.  At least the billboard is better than the 2014 slogan, "Be Royal".

  2. A little history....The "Royals" name originates from the American Royal, a livestock show, horse show, and rodeo held annually in Kansas City since 1899. The name also followed a theme of other professional franchises in the city, including the Kansas City Chiefs football team and the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro National League. (The Kansas City Kings basketball team was also named the Royals before moving to Kansas City in 1972.)

    1. Yeah I know, but being a British person who believe in a republican democracy, the term has bad connotations for me! Hope you are well Matt!
