30 Days of Summer: Kansas City Royals

Guest author Jordan Gowing, a lifelong Royals fan, is helping us out in our 30 Days of Summer series. He takes a fascinating look at a marketing campaign gone wrong. Enjoy.

According to the Mayan calendar, it’s the year our world ends.  According to Washington, it’s the pivotal election year that will essentially decide our country’s future.  According to the Royals, it is “Our time.”

Wait, what?  You’ve got to be kidding me, right?  As of today (8/17/12), the Royals are a full 14 games back in their division (which has been one of the weakest divisions in MLB history); what is all this “Our time” talk?

30 Days of Summer: Houston Astros

ImageI once knew a Houston Astros fan. His story is what I can only assume to be all too common among the Astros. His name was Jordan Frye. What you are about to here is (more or less) a true story.

I lived with Jordan for 2 and a half years in college. He was quiet, kept to himself mostly, eccentric, and some would say brilliant. There has never been, nor ever will be, anyone better at NHL ’06 for PS2. He drove me into fits of rage as I lost game after game, and I was no slouch. Continue reading
