From the perspective of a Royals fan, there may be no more reviled person on Twitter than Jason La Canfora.
He covers the NFL for CBS and CBSSports.com, and he’s an Orioles fan. Since the 2014 American League Championship Series, his dislike for the Royals is legendary.
For example, La Canfora tweeted this Thursday:

But there was a time when La Canfora was happy for the Royals. Seriously. I have proof:
It seems the source of his ire is two-fold. First, the Royals crushed his Orioles in the 2014 ALCS. Second, then-Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie wore a “These O’s Ain’t Loyal” T-shirt during that series, which prompted an apology from Guthrie.
That also upset actor Josh Charles, who went on a long Twitter rant. La Canfora ripped Guthrie:
Here are some of his other random tweets about the Royals since then, and they show the Royals are his least-favorite team.
