Nice Timing: Royals To Celebrate '85 Series Win While Cardinals Are In Town

The Royals will host a three-game series with the Cardinals at Kauffman Stadium this weekend. The two teams are or are not a rivalry -- depending on who you ask.

The two teams of course squared off in the I-70 series in 1985 when the Royals came away with the World Series victory.

So how will they celebrate 25 years? By giving away '85 series to posters when the Cardinals come to town.

On Sunday, the Royals will give away a “Salute to 1985 Royals World Series” poster to the first 20,000 fans. Here’s guessing most of those won’t make their way back to St. Louis.

The funny thing is that the stadium is usually filled by at least half (or more) Cardinals fans.

I have a feeling a lot of those posters end up under the seats.
