World Series…The Dream is Real!
If you have been following my Blog…you will note my enthusiasm for Sports…particularly Kansas City sports, ie; The Kansas City Chiefs (Football) and the Kansas City Royals (Baseball) and the Kansas Jayhawks (College Basketball)! (If you missed my posts on this journey…you may click on the below posts)
Yesterday, a miracle happened and the Kansas City Royals won the play-off games by winning the best of seven games!
Actually, they won the first four games, which meant the Baltimore Orioles did not win one game!
Please forgive my ‘bragging’ a bit….but you see, the Royals have not been to a play-off game, let alone, the World Series for 29 years!
But now it is happening…
Last week, I was in Kansas City and the whole city has turned “blue”….meaning of course that everyone you meet (met) had the colors of the baseball team somewhere on their bodies.
There were the jerseys, the blue hair, the tattoos….anything and everything to support this young team.
And yes, I was right in the middle of it all….wearing my old blue jerseys….and I do mean old, as I have supported this team for more years than I care to mention!
The World Series starts Oct 21st…right there in Kansas City in Kaufman Stadium… and I am so excited!
The Captain is looking at a new larger screen television for our great room, which has a little to do with the fact that our old 52 inch set is having issues with color tones AND me being able to see the upcoming games clearly! 🙂
I do have my “stand-by” television in the bedroom…but for the World Series of Baseball….if one can not attend the games in person…one definitely needs 60 inches or bigger! 😉
Congratulations to the Boys of October….our Men in Blue…they have earned the title of men in blue, as they have certainly made the play-off games exciting.
They started with the Wild Card game against the Oakland Athletics which ended 9-8 in one of the most thrilling games in baseball.
This game would either make or break them and Ned Yost, the Royals Manager stated “That’s the most incredible game I have ever been a part of” .
Then they went on to Anaheim to face the Los Angeles Angels, where they did a clean sweep (3 games) of the top team in baseball. (They had to win the best of 5 games)
