The Internet Apparently Exists In Kansas City

royals all-star game votes

by Andy Ostroff

If voting for the MLB All-Star Game ended today, seven Kansas City Royals would be in the AL starting lineup…and I think it’s great!

First of all, people in KC have something to be excited about other than BBQ. Granted, sitting at a computer all day while continually voting for their home team players isn’t a cure for obesity, but at least they have something to look forward to. It’s nice to see people in Kansas and I guess parts of Missouri excited about baseball again, as it was to see last year when they were finally relevant after a long hiatus.

Although I eventually grew out of it, I was once a pretty big Royals fan. Hell, I wore a hat and everything. Mainly because I wanted to be Bo Jackson, but there is still a soft spot in my heart for that team and their powder blue uniforms.

Next, I am super impressed that so many Royals fans know how to operate a computer. That is, of course, unless it’s just one dude who hacked the voting process because he has a crush on Eric Hosmer and wants him to play in the All-Star Game with all his friends.

Lastly, I am not ashamed to admit that I once voted like this myself. I think it was the summer of 2002, and Major League Baseball added a new feature to the All-Star voting process where the fans could vote for the final player selected via the Internet. Well, my favorite player at the time was Jason Varitek, and he was on that ballot. Additionally, I possessed an office job in which I could probably train a monkey to perform better than I could. So, I spent two whole workdays continually voting for V-tek, and I’m proud to say that it was actually the most productive two days I had at that company…
