Literary and musical challenges around the SF Giants vs the Kansas City Royals
The world series competition goes beyond the ballfield
The Heartland Men's Chorus threw down the gauntlet Monday morning, with director Dustin Cates making a wager: if the Giants beat the Kansas City Royals in the World Series, he'd don a Giants jersey during a chorus rehearsal. If the Giants somehow lost to a team that hasn't seen a World Series since the Reagan administration, San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus director Tim Seelig would have to sport a Royalettes jersey.
Kansas City, San Francisco accepts your challenge. Not just between baseball teams, but between gay men's choruses.
Literate competition as well: The war of words is heating up btwn @KCLibrary and @SFPublicLibrary. It's even getting Shakesperean http://nbcbay.com/6OeyJ4t #WorldSeries
Sounding a bit Shakespearean, Liesl Christman, the Twitter czar for the Kansas City Public Library, tweeted on Wednesday morning, hours after the San Francisco Giants crushed the Royals in Game 1 on Tuesday, 7-1: "Tis but a flesh wound - @Royals will rally! Tonight, #LetsThrowFire!"
