What I Know, What I Don’t Know and Where to Get A Really Good Cupcake

I think it might be a safe assessment to say that I don’t know very much about a select few things. But, it’s probably also safe to say that I know something about a great many things. Now this has served me well at public gatherings and other places where I’m forced to “mingle” with people that I don’t really know, and today I thought I’d share some things I know and don’t know that you may find relevant.

WHAT I KNOW

If you want to be picked for a promotion and get put up on CrownVision, come out to the games early. Wear a lot of Royals gear, seek out the K Crew and tell them how wonderful they are. The K Crew is responsible for picking contestants. And they’re pretty swell folks so… find ‘em.

Generally, when I “throw it back” to Mike McCartney and he fails to reply to me, it is either because:
a. He is laughing.
b. He isn’t sure how to respond to my extremely clever banter.
c. He has to hurry up and announce the next player up to bat because times almost up.

Inning breaks are 1 minute 40 seconds long. Everything I say or anything else that happens during an inning break has to adhere to that time restriction. Watch the umpires after the 3rd out, they have stop watches.

Zack Greinke is a stud.

WHAT I DON’T KNOW

I have no idea why the person wearing the green shirt has won all but one — count it, one — of the Live John Deere Mow ‘Em Down Races.

I have no clue why there is not a “Mustache Cam.” Although, I’m campaigning hard to make that happen.

I’m clueless as to why some people stand up from their seats behind home plate and wave incessantly hoping that the person on the other end of their cell phone conversation says something like, “ya… ya man… ya I totally see you.”

I’m not sure why there is not an invitation for a community slip-and-slide when the tarp is on the field during a rain delay. I mean, what better way to kill time.

WHERE TO GET A REALLY GOOD CUPCAKE



2IMG_0448.JPGFinally, I ask that you please indulge me on this one. Over the past few weeks my two-year-old daughter Sophia and I have been on a quest to discover the best cupcake in Kansas City. (That’s what you do when you have a two year old, right?) We have found it, and I think it’s worth sharing. It’s at Cupcake A La Mode on 47th Street just west of the Country Club Plaza. It’s tough to go wrong with the Raspberry Lemonade cupcake.2IMG_0509.JPG Delicious. I’m sure they’re die-hard Royals fans as well. Does that make it more appropriate? Anyhow, the Royals are in first place in the AL Central. Treat yourself to a cupcake!

 

Go Royals!

I have been a die-hard Royals fan for as long as I can remember. We have had season tickets but had to give them up. But I still make it out to as many games as I can. And I have to say, you are one of my favorite parts about going out to the K. I think what you do to keep the crowd involved and excited in the game is just great. We look forward to seeing you. Keep up the great work.
