 With recent failures from the KC Chiefs and KC Royals, fans still are angry. By Dylan Gehlbach Let’s be honest here; Kansas City sports fans have to be some of the most fed up fans in all of sports.  You could say I have a bias, being from around the Kansas City area, but Kansas Citians may have more right to be upset than others with their two professional teams.  If you’re wondering why, let me walk you through it. We’ll start with the obvious: The Kansas City Royals.  Among a multitude of depressing facts, here’s what I can come up with.  First of all, the Royals haven’t made the postseason since 1985. 27 years….
