Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm actually a Royals fan, but I enjoy baseball in general. I'm looking forward to the upcoming series.

I was in attendance for the first inter-league series between the Royals/Pirates. I remember being excited to see Joe Randa, who the season before had been one of my favorite Royals, after he had been traded to Pittsburgh for Jeff King and Jay Bell (man, we fleeced you guys!).

I don't follow much hockey, but the Penguins are definitely the only team I do follow...

Welcome to the board! Misery loves comfort and considering you're a Royals fan, you've come to the right place.

Welcome to the board! Care to trade that Greinke fella for Eric Hinske and Tyler Yates?

My thoughts exactly.

Well, there was rumor that Braves expected us to take Francoeur for him, so...

hi, mileage! Welcome! I was just listening to Royals-Indians on the radio (I live in Cleveland.) Royals were up 9-0 last I heard.

Anyway I grew up in Missouri.. use to listen to Denny Matthews do Royals play-by-play on radio.
I sure remember that series three years ago. The Pirates lost ten or eleven in a row.. got swept by KC who was the worst team in baseball at the time. That may have been my lowest point (frustration-wise) as a Pirates fan. Lost one of those games 15-5 or something like that.

High mileage-- as you see I live in Wheeling and have most of my life. I was a teacher/coach/ councilman here. Maybe I know them as Wheeling is not a big city - just over 30,000.

PM me if you want to share info about your family. Or just post here.

mileage, did you ever go to the Palace of Gold? I use to go to Moundsville about once a year. My wife refuses to go inside their temple but they are good people. I was actually hoping to go there this weekend but car needed some repairs. They (Hare Krishnas) have a 24 hour kirtan going there as I "speak."
