Benches Clear in Game 2 of World Series After Royals Rough Up Hunter Strickland (Videos)
Royals Peanut Guy with Amazing Arm Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity (Video)
Being a Royals peanut guy is a pretty thankless job. The hours are long, you don’t get to watch the games, the benefits suck (haha jk there are no benefits!), and Kansas City summers can be pretty damn hot.
However, as we learned from Game 2 of the World Series between the Royals and Giants on Wednesday night, if you stick with it, you will eventually get your chance to shine.
You see, for some reason, fans in the upper deck at Kauffman Stadium were not getting adequate peanut service on Wednesday night, so they called down to the peanut guy in the field boxes for assistance. That peanut guy, recognizing that this might be his only chance to show the world what he can do, was happy to oblige. So he wound up and fired a legume laser beam to the upper deck, like a boss, earning a raucous ovation from the crowd.
Then the guy in the upper deck crumpled a five dollar bill into a ball and tossed it down to the guy, completing what I can only assume is the most amazing baseball stadium food transaction in MLB postseason history.
Take a look:
Well done, Royals peanut guy. You and your customer have restored my faith in humanity.
