Roger Ebert died of cancer yesterday at the age of 70.

KC Kingdom: Sweet Victory, Ebert, Target Hates Fat People


ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Jeremy Guthrie picked up right where left off last season, going six innings and striking out nine while allowing only one run to help the Royals earn their first win of the season. Jarrod Dyson, Chris Getz, Alex Gordon each had RBI’s in a three-run fifth inning, which proved to be enough behind Guthrie’s pitching. Kansas City is now 1-2 on the season – the same record as the Detroit Tigers – and will travel today to Philadelphia to have an early interleague tussle with the Phillies.

Preseason schedules came out for the Kansas City Chiefs. They’ll travel to New Orleans to play the Saints in their first game of 2013.
