Kansas City Royals Fans Sure Are Loud

This is pretty cool. I don’t know why someone would be recording outside Kauffman Stadium…but I am so glad they were. Now, as awesome as this video is (and it is)…I only wish there was video from INSIDE the stadium so we can see what everyone was cheering about!  By comparison, here’s the current view […]

As you’re fully aware, the John Rocker experiment ended Wednesday night when the former big leaguer was booted off “Survivor: San Juan del Sur”. But I’ve gotta hand it to the guy.

The Rocker Report: Week Three
