Once again, it is time to crack open Poor Pichardo's Almanack to see what this date means in Royals history.
Beginning in 1992, Poor Pichardo's Almanack became the preeminent source for all things Royal, and no fan should be without a copy. You can find this for under six bucks (plus shipping) on most reputable retail and auction sites, though be aware the native Spanish has been translated to a hybrid of Old and Middle English in some sort of confused appeal to Chaucer fanatics. It's still a fine publication and we heartily recommend you order a copy, but be sure to keep a thesaurus handy.
And now, here is the entry for April 12th:
Damn, that was a good time to be a Royals fan. Maybe we'll see some of the same charmed luck that befell that squad tomorrow at the K.
Go Royals! You're the Best!
