The Royals Can’t Afford a Whole Billboard

Have you seen this new Royals billboard? Shameful. Not only are they cheap with their payroll, but apparently they’re too cheap to afford to cover an entire billboard. This is ridiculous. What’s next? Hot dogs at Kauffman Stadium with a bite taken out of them? Seats with no backs? Beer with no foam?

Oh, it’s supposed to be like that?

Then, actually, I kind of love it.

We hoped you liked reading The Royals Can’t Afford a Whole Billboard by Jeremy Blachman!
