Countdown to Opening Day: the Kyle Farnsworth Fan Search

KyleFarnsworthSpringTraining2010.jpgAll of the Royals have reported to Surprise, but there's still a lot of time between now and Opening Day. I'll be counting down the days with a collection of random Royals-related numbers. Most of them mean nothing - this isn't supposed to be a groundbreaking series of research - but they'll hopefully make the days go faster until April 5.

40 Days = the number 40 on Kyle Farnsworth's back

All right, readers. Time to work your magic. A few days ago on Twitter, I asked if anyone could provide photographic proof of a Kyle Farnsworth fan. No one there has been able to find such a thing, so I'm opening this up to you.

And I'm dead serious - there will even be a prize.

So here's what I want:
1a. A photo of a person in a Kyle Farnsworth Royals shirt or jersey (no Chicago/Detroit/NY)
    1b. Those 40th Anniversary free giveaway jerseys from last summer do NOT count. We have to have the Professor's name on it. The point is to find someone who likes Kyle Farnsworth so much, they went out of their way and spent money to wear his name.

2. This can be from any location - Kansas City, Surprise, or wherever you are.

3. A picture of yourself WITH the Farnsworth fan would bump up the prize winnings.

4. E-mail your entry to minda.haas at The contest will be open indefinitely, because I'm sure that finding this could take time.

So....go! Keep your phone cameras at the ready. And if you find the mythical creature in question, buy him a beer. He probably needs it.
