It has been a long, dry spell for us ROYALS fans.
The last time our home town Boys in Blue won the World Series was 30 years ago!!
SOOOOO.....it's little wonder that, after TWO years IN A ROW of outstanding seasons for this team , our town has been going CRAZY!!
We got soooooo close last year when they played the GIANTS in the World Series. Our team came up short in the end.
The sting of the loss was bittersweet. It served to remind us of what a great season our team had....but OH MY....so near and yet so far!!
The ROYALS players started the 2015 season with one goal, and only one, in mind......to WIN THE WORLD SERIES.
They plowed through the season. . .and in the end. . .they earned their spot in the World Series AGAIN!!
It's all our town thought about.
There was blue EVERYWHERE.
We were crazy, giddy with excitement......we were living a dream one more time. . .we were snatching up the latest ROYALS t-shirts and buying high priced tickets at Kauffman Stadium .. .and adorning our cars with KC ROYALS flags. . .and waving rally towels. . .and huddling around our TVs when the games went to Queens .........
And then on Sunday night. . .the wild and crazy ride was over. . . it happened right before our eyes . . . .
on national TV. . .the Kansas City ROYALS won the 5th game of the the 2015 World Series and became the World Champions!!
It was another wild and crazy game because that's how this team, this group of unselfish and talented players, did it all season long. . .why would the series by any different ?
We are in love with these guys and we don't make any bones about it.
They have brought so much joy back into our lack luster baseball-ness. . .they are scrappy, they are talented, they are fun. . .they are compassionate :
They are the KANSAS CITY ROYALS!!
They are the WORLD CHAMPIONS!!
