Just A Bump In The Road!!!
What could be more American than Mom (Me), Apple Pie (I just made one) and Baseball???
This post is all about the Kansas City Royals…..yes, my dear readers, it is Sports time….so if you don’t care for sports, you can stop reading here…but if you would like to see “my team”….please read on.:)
You knew it had to be coming soon….I just can’t seem to go for very long without talking about one of my Sports Teams and in this case, it is the Royals.
The pics below are taken from the game in New York yesterday…note the Yankees don’t seem to have many hometown fans to cheer them on. Very unlike Kaufman Stadium which is filled to capacity for all home games. Just sayin’ 😉
The very same Royals who came from behind last year and ended up playing in the World Series. (tis true they lost the last game, but they still have the rings…and they were the only team in the American League to make it to the World Series…quite an accomplishment.)
However, after beating the New York Yankees in Kansas City (two out of three games) just a couple weeks ago…the Royals went to the Bronx and swiftly lost 3 games to the Yankees. In my opinion, this “skid” is going to be brief. I believe in this young team and we are still early in the season of 162 games.
This too shall pass.
After the loss yesterday….First Baseman Eric Hosmer commented… “Just a bump in the road, man, …We didn’t really do anything this entire [3 game] series. That’s part of the game — 162 games, you’re obviously not going to be firing on all cylinders all year.”
So true, especially when these baseball teams play every single day with only a day off now and again to travel to the next series of games. Many times, after a game is played…. there is not a day off to travel…the team boards a plane (or bus if the City is close to KC) and plays the next day.
And I have to confess…I am not worried about it either. 🙂
Let’s Go Royals!!!!!
