I thought it was pretty great that the Royals gave away commemorative 1985 World Series posters against the Cardinals this weekend. The Royals and Cardinals played in the 1985 World Series (with the Royals winning, by the way), so it was ironic (or well planned) that those posters came out against the Cards.â†µ
This week the theme continues as the first 20,000 fans for the Royals game against the White Sox will receive a commemorative DVD of the 1985 series.â†µ
The White Sox are in first place at the moment so it's a nice, "Hey we were good at one point, too!"â†µ
I think the Royals need to improve so we're not celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1985 World Series with nothing good to point to in between.
