Cheese Epilogue

The Royals made the playoffs this year.

The Royals won an insane Wild-Card game.

The Royals won eight straight playoff games to get to the World Series.

The Royals took the San Francisco Giants to the seventh game of the World Series.

Then, the Royals lost.

It was a disappointing ending to a completely unexpected and wonderful post-season.

But I'm a man of my word.

Back in early September I promised I'd stop ragging on the current team if they made the playoffs. I know their success has nothing to do with me, but I also know they didn't deserve all the shit I flung at them over the last four or six or eight years of this stupid blog.

So this blog is going on hiatus, sort of.

I won't go away completely, but I'm going to try very hard to not talk about the current Royals on here anymore, and certainly not in a derisive way (though there's always twitter). I still have Royals recipes and goofy baseball cards and novelty records to share on this blog, but posts will be very infrequent from here on out, I imagine.

Thanks to everyone who has ever taken the time to read anything on this page. It means a lot to me that a few people have enjoyed some of the words I've written or the pictures I've made.

Thanks especially to those of you who have taken the time to contribute content to the blog, even though you were never compensated for it and never will be. I'd love it if you want to keep posting here, but I understand if you want to take this as an opportunity to move on to other things.

What else?

I guess I'd be remiss if I didn't give the fake Emil Brown a chance to say goodbye.

He's been one of our longest running and least successful jokes on this blog, so it's only fair to give him one final moment to ruin any good will we've built up.

What do you have for us this time, old friend?

Oh boy.

Goodbye, Emil. Thanks for making me laugh that one time. You'll always be one of my favorite Royals.

See the rest of you guys sometime in 2015.

Let's not wait another 29 years to do this again.

Go Royals! You're the Best!


  1. False, you said if they won the division. They did not. RWC lives on!!!

    Don't say goodbye yet. We haven't seen the David Glass Fire sale yet. We'll have a new round of Angel Berroa, Tony Pena Jr., Sidney Ponson, and Jeff Francoeur level players. Ned Yost will leave a sub 200 batter in because he doesn't want to hurt feelings.

    You weren't the novelty Royals blog we deserved, but you were the novelty Royals blog we needed.

    I was also going to tell you to check yoself because you did say you would go on hiatus if they win the division. Anyway, I don't think a hiatus has a defined time limit. It could be over by spring training. And, going to the world series doesn't stop Moose from being a mouth breather so what's the difference? Even good teams have a little cheese. I'm glad the current players aren't all turd sandwiches but you can still find some funny shit in there and you might as well post it when you think of it. Otherwise, thanks for the laughs and take care.

    And how the hell can the world series have an effect on Sex Talk with Rex and Hawk?
