There are worse people to be friends with, of course, but for some reason this tweet from Royals beat reporter Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star made me chuckle:

Comedian Jeff Foxworthy and other friends of manager Royals manager Ned Yost are in uniform and taking part in early workouts.

You know you’re a redneck when … eh, I don’t have the energy to even finish it.

    Jeff Foxworthy is not who I expected to be at the top of HBT when I came back over here….

    I remember reading that Foxworthy was/is a pretty good ballplayer. He might have even played some semi-pro ball when he was younger.

    I didn’t know Ned Yost might be a redneck…

    What has happened to Wisconsin?! Home of the Progressive movement. I’m stupified.

    More mustaches are always a good thing! Even if they are worn by a man responsible for cursing the world with Bill Engval and Larry the cable guy.

    Dale Earnhardt was one of Ned Yost best friends. Dale met Ned when Ned worked for the Braves.
