Royals Fan Reads Book To Cope With Team’s Loss

It’s been fascinating to watch the many ways that people in Kansas City are dealing with the Royals losing their first 10 games at home, a domestic debut that our pal Sam Mellinger says hasn’t been seen in baseball since 1913.

“Royals Book Guy,” (pictured above) created one of the world’s most expensive library seats (a $240 Crown Club ticket) by cracking open a novel during Monday night’s loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. (The screencap of him engrossed in a presumably better fantasy world zoomed around the Internet and earned him the ultimate sign of Internet traction — a parody Twitter account.)


The Royals headed out on a three-city, nine-game road trip on Tuesday night, but any thoughts of it being a renewing experience were doused with a 4-3 loss at Cleveland. The defeat ran their losing streak to 12 games. As Joe Posnanski notes, five of the 20 12-game losing streaks since the strike have sadly belonged to the Royals.

Fans might be well advised to bring a stack of magazines that need catching up on — that’s because a pair of series against the Yankees and Red Sox will be waiting when the Royals finally return home.

Would you even think about reading a novel on site if your favorite team had a losing streak? Share with us your ways of coping with a bad game!
