Royals fan fixes team logo on I-70 with his own money

Royals fan fixes logo on I-70 with own money

Just east of downtown Kansas City -- along the side of highway I-70 -- sat an old Royals logo that time forgot. It was one of those fancy rock logos that looks like it belongs in a hotel courtyard or Martha Stewart's garden, except that it looked like it hadn't been cared for since the last time the Royals were in the World Series.

Then Shawn Arcidino went rogue. 

Arcidino said that the Royals logo needed a bit of TLC (not the "Waterfalls" or the Honey Boo Boo kinds, either), so he spent weeks trying to track down the right person for the job before. Eventually, Arcidino, his 4-year-old daughter Jazmyn and a group of friends set out to fix the thing up themselves, pouring $81 and a half-hour of their own time into the project.

Looks like that red tape was no match for Royal blue. BOOM! That's a color pun.
