The Royals are in contention for the first time in years, and some amazing things are happening in Kansas City.
Granted, they still don't have a great shot at the playoffs (7.1%), but sitting just 2.5 games back in the Wild Card chase has fans ecstatic.
So euphoric, in fact, that 300-pound Jimmy Faseler, of Independence, MO was coerced into a mesmerizing, gyrating gut dance after back-to-back triples in last night's 7-1 win over Cleveland. Faseler's rendition of the Truffle Shuffle was so good that Yahoo's Jeff Passan tracked down the unabashed dancer.
“One of the most important things about a dancer is being in control of every extremity,” Faseler said. “I would consider that the fifth extremity.” (I would consider you a first-ballot Hall of Fame fan, Jimmy).
Faseler calls the move, “Bringing the Thunder,” and it's absolutely reason enough to cheer for the Royals. In fact, I hope Faseler's gut becomes the Royals' version of the rally monkey.
God bless this guy's torso.
