You may recall that last year a Kansas man sued the Kansas City Royals, alleging that a hot dog thrown by the team’s mascot — Sluggerrr — at a September 2009 game struck him in the eye and detached his retina. If you do recall that, you probably need to get a life, but you may recall it all the same.
Anyway, that case went to trial — to trial?! — and the jury reached a verdict. It was determined that Sluggerrr used the requisite level of hot dog-flinging care for a reasonable anthropomorphic lion mascot in the State of Missouri. The Royals win.
And people say there’s no justice in this country.
