Royals Imitating Art

I recently spent $13 at Wal-Mart on a collection of Warners Bros. Looney Tunes on DVD.  They're never on television anymore and I had a hunch that they're probably way funnier now than they were when I was 6, so I wanted to see if I was right.  I usually watch them while I'm falling asleep at night in bed, and yes, they're way funnier than I remember.  One in particular though - while not very good on its own merits - stood out for me; it's called The Gambling Bug.  Basically the plot is that there's this literal bug who goes and bites this farm cat, who then promptly goes mental and is compelled to gamble.  He settles on gambling on gin for penalties with the barnyard bulldog, who proceeds to kick his ass in the first hand of gin.  Since he lost, the cat then has to go to a file cabinet and draw out a penalty, read it, then perform it.  They're all horrible and it doesn't really matter what the cat draws out - he's going to get shot in the face with an arrow or blown up by a keg of gunpowder or something - but when he reads his fate aloud, he can't imagine drawing anything worse... "No.. NO... NO!  ANYthing but that!"...*sobs*

The next day I'm following the Royals on Gamecast at work, Day Banny is sparkling in the sun like the object of a Stephanie Meyers hairbrush-handle fantasy, and then he walks the lead-off hitter and gives up a double.  Which means there's a pause in updates on the Gamecast, and I knew Trey was working some bullpen magic.  I felt like that cat slowly trudging over to the penalty file cabinet, waiting to see what I'd draw.  "No... No... NO!!  ANYone but Colon!"  Like it mattered.  I knew what was going to happen next, and in an attempt to distract myself from the inevitable collapse, I started hunting through my old bookmarks and ironically came upon this page which I'd only found this offseason and wanted to check out more during the season.  And sure enough, there's a big conglomeration of people just like me, collectively losing their sh*t and expecting the worst.  So here I am, I had to join up, I've always felt like I needed a support group to back a franchise that can be summed up by a Looney Tunes cartoon... That's all, folks.
