We asked fans on Twitter which of Sunday’s two hometown-team losses hurt more: the Chiefs’ 24-17 defeat at Denver, or the Royals’ 8-4 setback against the Boston Red Sox. Here’s a sampling of what you said.
▪ @sfields83: Royals loss was exponentially worse
▪ @LTaylor331: Royals for sure. Completely mismanaged and blowing a solid lead against a last place team. Chiefs today actually encouraging
▪ @DaveThatPirate: Royals. Always.
▪ @neatscRealtorKc: Royals!
▪ @PizzaAndWhiskey: can’t pick one. My liver hates them both equally.
▪ @RoyalsBlue_com: thought the Chiefs had an encouraging loss...thought the #Royals had....well...they have Ned Yost.
▪ @themelvins: Royals. Not even close. Chiefs gave me some hope today. Royals sneezed on my cereal.
▪ @Cerner4Royals: Royals, they are slipping away and the manager cant get out of his own way
▪ @JLMcClain5: Royals because I knew the Chiefs are not contenders this year. The Royals talked me into believing. I should know better.
▪ @AdamJensen28: Royals. After last week, Chiefs’ expectations were super low
▪ @JTchocolateE: Royals. Chiefs exceeded everyone’s expectations.
▪ @greggins89: Royals. Actually have a chance at the playoffs.
▪ @DouHan: Royals. Blew a lead against an inferior team with nothing to play for. Chiefs went toe-to-toe with favorites.
▪ @true2blue04: royals expected chiefs to get blasted
▪ @Mizener: Royals. They had it and lost it. Chiefs exceeded last week’s loss with much less this week.
▪ @Lnorman22: Yes.
▪ @BenMitchum: Royals was a worse gut punch.
▪ @chiefssnyder19: Chiefs
▪ @jcblue36: royals by far
▪ @TheEdwardBrooks: Royals. Chiefs was expected. You would think Royals could hold a 4-0 lead
▪ @wtalley: Crow, so Royals.
