KANSAS CITY, KS — The Kansas City Royals obliged the baseball world last night when they beat the San Francisco Giants 10-0 in Game 6.
Blowouts aside, what Royals catcher, Salvador Perez, really enjoys are the occasional pitcher mound visits with manager, Ned Yost.
“It’s really pleasant and touching every time we get together,” said Perez, “He’s so thoughtful and considerate. This evening Ned uncorked a lovely bottle of wine and surprised us all with a generous plate of plump, juicy Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill wings tossed in homemade sauces, served with celery and a choice of succulent ranch or Bleu cheese dressing. The little devil even sprang for the entire 50-wing party platter. Really, it was so sweet. I know we were ahead like a ga-zillion runs, but he really shouldn’t have.”
“What can I say,” cooed Yost, “it was a beautiful night. We’re were nestled amid lovely surroundings. Things were going so well. The park never looked better. Everyone was giddy with excitement and extra effort. How could you not commemorate this ‘something special’ moment with an inviting nosh of culinary Bikinis goodness? I mean, they grow up so fast. Times like this need to be cherished, nurtured.”
Following leisurely sips of a pleasant 2011 Viogner vintage and a final, playful, finger-licking exchange between “el Katch-or” and his handsome gaffer, Game 6 resumed.
Their only regret?
“A companion order, perhaps,” continued a slightly breathless back-stopper.
“It’s a tiny shame we didn’t cap off our mid-mound tryst with a tasty Chicken Fajita Taco or a crispy Pulled Pork Mini accented with a subtle floral arrangement. But let’s not quibble. The setting and sentiment was exquisite. So Bikini-esque.”
The lopsided Royals victory will force a seventh and deciding game against the San Francisco Giants tonight on FOX.
“Is that true? That hadn’t occurred to me,” purred Perez.
