Billy who? Meet: #CountryBreakfast

Thanks to Twitter, the Billy Butler era in Kansas City has come to an end.

Let me explain.

For immediate purposes, forget about Billy Butler. There is no Billy. Bill does not exist. You see, in barely a weeks' time, Butler has gone from a glorified Ken Harvey to the next best thing in Kansas City sports:


With the help of a mad, Country Breakfast style power-streak, a quick-witted Royals fan, and one HI-larious foul-up by Fox Sports Kansas City during a rain-delayed, extra-inning game in Boston last week, the Twitter universe has officially tagged Butler with greatest Kansas City sports nickname since the turn of the millenium.

The story at explains the rest.

Then today there was this, from 610's Nick Wright via Twitter: "According to Royals' great Frank White, Billy Butler has embraced the #CountryBreakfast nickname."

Of course he has. So much so, it looks as if the folks at Pinetarpress have designed t-shirts, with proceeds going to the Bishop Sullivan Center's Hit it a Ton campaign "aimed at feeding the hungry in Kansas City".

Well done, indeed. Now... say it with me...

Coun—Try—Break—Fast! Clap...Clap...Clap! Clap! Clap!
