Jeremy Gurthrie Trolls Baltimore with Custom “These O’s Ain’t Royal” T-Shirt (Pic)
The fact that Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Gurthrie actually made a custom “These O’s Ain’t Royal” t-shirt is pretty great. The fact that he wore his custom “These O’s Ain’t Royal” t-shirt to his press conference after winning Game 3 of the ALCS is ridiculously awesome.
That slogan, of course, is a play on the Chris Brown song “Loyal,” the chorus to which is “These hoes ain’t loyal.”
Get it? It rhymes!
Seriously though, that’s a goddamn fantastic t-shirt. Sure, a bunch of Orioles fans got all butthurt over this, because people are just way too sensitive these days. But this is really just a case of a baseball player having fun. (Crazy right? Having fun playing baseball?) It’s not like the shirt said “F*CK THE ORIOLES AND EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN BALTIMORE.” It was a silly pun that basically meant, “Our team is better than your team!” If the Orioles shot back with a “At Least It Didn’t Take Us 29 Years to Make the Playoffs” t-shirt, that would be funny, too.
Nevertheless, Guthrie still apologized:
My intention was not to anger O’s fans or friends w/my shirt 2night.I apologize to those offended.Did not consider this reaction.Go Royals.

Hopefully he did not really mean it.
