Today is a special day, Royals fans! It's Mike Moustakas's 24th birthday! Understandably, yet unfortunately, however, Mike's birthday will once again be overshadowed by the anniversary of September 11, 2001.
You see, because of terrorism, Mike Moustakas hasn't been able to celebrate his birthday since he was a pre-teen.
Because of terrorism, every year MLB guilt trips us into buying these shitty hats:
Because of terrorism, we have to listen to an American Idol reject sing God Bless America every Sunday afternoon 7th Inning Stretch instead of enjoying the Limbo presented by Jose Cuervo.
But this isn't about the limbo. Don't change the subject. This is about Mike Moustakas. The chosen one. On that fateful Tuesday morning, he vowed to make the terrorists pay by one day becoming a major league third baseman that for some reason wears a single blue sleeve on his right arm. He's paid the ultimate price for his country by agreeing to play for the Kansas City Royals. Today, we honor him.
Happy Birthday Mike!
Go America! You're The Best!
