JOPLIN, MO.— The Cell Phones Medics store has been decorated on one side for the Kansas City Royals and the other for the San Francisco Giants. Store Co-Owner Guy Voltz is a die hard Giants fan, while his wife and co-owner, Janet, is a die hard Royals fan. The store was decorated in response to Joplin’s “Go Blue” event this week, but Guy felt since he’s a long time Giants fan, he must only support his team. The couple says tensions don’t get too high between them because they care too much about each other and the fun of the game.
“This store loves all of the sports, I mean we care about the Royals, we care about Kansas or Missouri teams. In the store, it’s all fun and we hope people come in and share a laugh with it,” said Guy Voltz, Cell Phones Medics Store Owner.
Voltz says he hasn’t seen too much grief for having Giants decorations. He also jokingly says all the houses that are decorated in black and orange are secretly cheering for the Giants, instead of celebrating Halloween.
