Hunter Pence is not in Kansas anymore.
The outfielder for the San Francisco Giants says he didn't realize the Kansas City Royals were based in Missouri until he saw a Royals fan's sign that read: "Hunter Spence thinks he's in Kansas."
"We're not?" Pence thought to himself, he tells Yahoo Sports.
Granted, there is a Kansas City in Kansas, but it's still hard to imagine that a grown man doesn't at least know the geographic locations of the cities where he works.
Pence's explanation: "I guess I'm really bad at geography. This is Missouri, correct? It's tricky."— Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) October 20, 2014
Here's the sign, via Reddit:
The Hunter Pence sign craze started in August in New York when Mets fans poked fun at his IQ with a few mild insults, including "Hunter Pence can't shuffle playing cards," and "Hunter Pence eats pizza with a fork."
But who knew the meme would pay off so well when Pence realized (at least) one of the signs is right about him?If one Hunter Pence sign is correct, then Daily RFT would like to think that all Hunter Pence signs are correct, especially these St. Louis-themed ones:
