Royals Fan Flips the Double Bird (GIF)
The Kansas City Royals have gotten off to a solid start this season, having won five of their first eight games, and each of their first two at home. That has them sitting atop the Central Division as of this afternoon—yeah, I know it’s early—and their early success has also provided the fans in Kauffman Stadium with some excitement. Or, at least those who have shown up seem excited.
The Royals’ home opener on Monday may have been sold out, but only 11,697 fans showed up for the team’s second home game on Tuesday. The few fans that did show up, however, seemed to be having a blast as they watched their boys in blue beat the Minnesota Twins by a score of 7-4.
Among them was this dude, who took a moment to flip the double bird at the Twins’ Wilkin Ramirez after he was retired by Royals reliever Greg Holland in the ninth.
I can’t wait until some brave, badass pitcher decides to adopt the double bird as his strikeout celebration.
