This may be…skip that, IS DEFINITELY the most important blog I will write all season.

The Royals are considering bringing back Halter Top Night.

Now, if you were a Royals fan during the seventies, you know that Halter Top Night was both a consistent sellout and a feast for the eyes that was unmatched.  I personally do not find it a coincidence that the absence of Halter Top Night and postseason play have run together.  Now, as loyal Royals fans, we have an opportunity to bring it back.

On July 4, the Royals are running a “retro promotion night” and asking fans to vote on it.  The options are:  a seat cushion, a floppy hat, a beer stein, or the wonderful and entirely necessary Halter Tops.  To vote, just follow these instructions:

Go to the Royals’ website, click on “Schedule,” and go the July 4 game.  You’ll see the little white box with an asterisk denoting a promotion.  Click on it, and you’ll find a popup menu on the promotion giving you the opportunity to vote. 

As a bonus, vote and you will receive a 50 percent off coupon e-mailed to you for tickets to that very game!  It’s a deal that can’t be beaten, and I sincerely hope that all URF readers will do so. 

I received this in an e-mail from someone exhorting their MALE friends to vote; here at the URF we take a more enlightened approach.  I also urge all female readers to vote for Halter Top Night; after all, ladies, you will be the featured attraction!

Besides, what the hell do you want with a seat cushion, silly floppy hat, or a beer stein you’ll never use again?  I want to see Royals halter tops all over KC!

Oh, by the way—losing streak stops at six.  Zack beats ‘em 8-1 on a night when everything works together.  Just like I hoped.
