Young Royals fan is disturbingly excited, shirtless and most of all, awesome (video)


In what just may become the indelible fan image from the Kansas City Royals’ miraculous run through the postseason, a crazily excitable young fan just might be on the verge of Internet stardom thanks to his disturbing but amusing demonstration of unhinged joy, all while going sans shirt in the stands at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night.

It’s unclear exactly when the image above was snapped or when the footage below was recorded, but one thing is clear: This kid don’t need no shirt in the crisp autumn air of Kansas City, nor is he going to hold anything back when expressing his crazy-eyed, goofy-faced support of the Royals.

Now that footage documents the epitome of being pumped up to an incredible degree. The jumping, the shaking of the head, the lack of shirt. It’s all there.

And why not? The team, after a decades-long absence from the postseason, is one win away on Wednesday afternoon from a remarkable sweep over the Baltimore Orioles and punching its ticket to the World Series.

Keep on keeping on, Royals Kid. And don’t be afraid to let that freak flag fly. Although it’s pretty clear he doesn’t need to be given that advice. Look at him. He’s a rock star.
