Wow, you can actually see the outline of the iron-on patch. What a high quality product. :rolleyes:

By the way, if anyone actually buys this, I'm going to find out where you live and sit outside your house blaring "Don't Stop Believing" By Journey at 4 AM. :)

It's hard to imagine the Kansas City Royals being the feel-good story of the summer. Teams that exhibit such rampant futility rarely are. But if you happened to be watching the Royals-A's series this weekend, you saw how lovable these losers can be. http://espn.go.com/media/pg2/2005/0823/photo/jose_lima_275.jpgThere's no quitting when the clock reads "Lima Time."They've been mocked and taunted. To be charitable, they have a four-A roster -- too good for Triple-A, not quite big leaguers. Their ownership is frugal to the point of embarrassment. And yet there was Jose Lima on Friday night, with his team losing its 19th straight game, sitting on the steps of the dugout in Oakland, cheering his teammates to the last out of a 4-0 loss. Lima pitched the first six innings of the game, then stayed in the dugout the rest of the way. More often than not, a starting pitcher heads for the clubhouse after being removed from a game. The next night, when the Royals broke their losing streak with a 2-1 win, Lima led a charge out of the dugout at game's end. It looked more like a team winning the pennant than a team ending a near-historic losing streak. Lima, of course, is always interested in finding the red lights of the television cameras. Without getting too deep into it, the Royals provided a fascinating case study. They weren't embarrassed about getting excited about breaking their losing streak. It felt good, and they weren't too cool to let it show. Saturday's starting pitcher, Mike Wood, said, "It felt like a playoff game." Really. It looked like one, too, and that's not a criticism. Strange to say, but it was a good look
