Look at Jerry Royster Getting Positive Press

H/T to the Marmot's Hole. It's mostly a fluff piece and not entirely accurate, but it's good for the KBO and for Jerry.

I quote...

In this league, umpires apologize for unpopular calls. Some change their minds as a gesture of politeness.

I've never seen an umpire change a call to be polite or apologize for that matter.

It goes on...

These fans crave a different variety of snacks to go with their ballpark beers: dried squid or live octopus, anyone?

Which ballpark has live octopus?

From Jerry Royster himself...

"Lotte Giants fans are Yankees, Red Sox the Cubs fans all in one," he said.

Not true Mr. Royster. Lotte fans aren't obnoxious, I've found them to be really humble when talking about their club. So that means they're not Yankees or Red Sox fans. They also pay attention to the game and they don't pee in troths. So, they're not like Cubs fans either. I don't really think there is a good comparison for Lotte fans. They're unique to Busan.

Now Now, lets not use sweeping generalities based on a malignant minority to judge a whole group of fans. Through the magic of the internet, I am able to be a bit of a fan of the KBO, but having been raised in MA, The Boston Red Sox will always be my true baseball love. Yes there are some loudmouthed idiots out there but the Majority of Sox Fans (and begrudgingly even Yankee fans) are loyal, passionate,knowledgeable, and focused on the game. I hate how the moron minority gets blown out of proportion, especially by the media.

I cannot defend the frathouse mentality of the Cubs " Bleacher Bums", though. . .
