Two links to strange 1980s Royals-related content

Brett Wilson

Did you know that …

A: The Royals tried to lock up George Brett, Willie Wilson and Dan Quisenbery to lifetime deals after the 1985 season via side deals involving investments in a suburban Nashville, Tennessee apartment complex?; and

B. That this is what George Brett would have looked like on his 1986 Topps baseball card if he were, in fact, a zombie. Bonus zombies include Ryne Sandberg, Harold Baines, Mike Schmidt and Andre Dawson.

Bonus: my parents lived in that Nashville apartment complex for a few weeks when my dad got relocated to Nashville in the mid-90s.  There were no reports of zombies and/or Willie Wilson on the premises.

Don’t tell me that HBT doesn’t give you news you can use.

    Anyone else think that ZOMBIE Brett looks a lot better than regular Brett?

    Zombie Mike Schmidt is listed as a 1B. I guess zombies don’t have the arm strength to play 3B.

    Do zombie’s crap themselves after Alaskan King Crab too or does that only happen to George Brett the mortal?

    How about showing the Zombie Mookie Wilson to your daughter Craig?

    I demand more zombie-related content and less oblique-related content.
