So here's something to look forward to...
If you attend any Student Nights (any Wednesday home game) at the K this season, you may find something disturbing in your beer.
Well, not in your beer, but on it.
Yep. Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) has partnered with Aramark, the Royals food and beverage provider, in an effort to bring awareness to the dangers of drinking and driving. To do this, they have produced limited edition plastic beer cups featuring the endearing mugshots of former Royals that have been arrested for alcohol related offenses.
An anonymous Royals official explained, "We know the team will probably be lousy. We know young people have no chance of getting a job. Students are going to drink. It's like, we want you to have a good time at the ball game, but don't end up like one of these assholes, you know?"
Here's a look at the rest of the set.
So, when you're out there this season, do me a favor. Take it easy. Be smart. Think of these fallen Royals. Instead of rushing to get one more round before the 7th inning alcohol cutoff, take a moment to discuss the "What Year Was It?" video board challenge with the fan sitting next to you.
Then, when Jonathan Broxton predictably pulls a Ricky Botallico and the Royals lose, forget what I just said, go out to the parking lot and drink until you can't feel feelings.
Go Royals! You're The Best!
