God Hates the Royals

Great juxtaposition by Flanagan in his latest piece for the KC Star:

"When I was a catcher or when I'm at first base now," [Mike Sweeney] said, "if the pitcher is of faith and he's kind of scuffling, I'll go talk to him and say 'Hey, dude, what are you doing? Rely on the Holy Spirit that lives in you.'"

The Royals were last in the league in team ERA at 5.49

Talk about an understatement

Check out the lead from this AP story:

"Former Sox farmhand Michael Jordan admits being 'stupid' in his gambling, but never jeopardized his livelihood or his family, he told CBS' '60 Minutes' in an interview to be broadcast Sunday."

How on earth does a journalist feel that the most important identifying characteristic about Michael Jordan was his time with the Chicago White Sox minor league team?

I guess I've been away from the newsroom too long.
