My dear readers…you knew this was coming. Well, at least those of you who are sports fans and know what an avid sports nut I am, had to know this was coming. What you ask? This post shouting the name of the Kansas City Royals as they beat the Toronto Blue Jays and advancing to the World Series. Actually, the second World Series…in a row.
You can just imagine the excitement of my whole family as our little fingers texted back and forth over each and every pitched ball, hit, run, home run etc etc etc. Yes, way past midnight due to the one hour rain delay in the 8th inning. But the Royals came through and made all the Kansas City fans all over the country very proud.
I was screaming and jumping up and down…the Captain was a bit more subdued, but none the less excited… as were our kids and grandkids. We all kept texting long after the game was over as no one could think of sleep after such an exciting game. One of our beautiful granddaughters had to go to work today…don’t know if she got any sleep or not….but she was a trooper and hung in there with all of the rest of us.
The Kansas City Royals…being from the Midwest…has flown under the radar all season long. East Coast Sports announcers and analysts barely mentioning them, but rather touting the more famous East and West Coast teams.
Many said the trip to the World Series last year was a fluke for a bunch of players with “No Prominent Names”….and they are right about stand-out players. No one individual stands out on this young team….they all work collectively to get the job done and I am so very proud of all of them.
The line up last night is one that most would not recognize as these players all have nicknames…but we fans know who they are!
So congratulations to the Kansas City Royals….lets keep going with the first World Series game on Tuesday night, when they play the New York Mets!
#TaketheCrown! #LetsGoRoyals! #ForeverRoyal!
Thank you….thank you very much… for letting me get this out of my system, my dear readers!
Enjoy your week-end! I am still dancing! 😉 You know where I will be Tuesday Evening.
The Kansas City Royals will be unbeatable this year, Kari. Go Royals!
I really think they will be able to go all the way Sandy….I certainly hope so.
how have you been feeling?
Hasn’t this baseball season been fun Karole? It is always fun when we are winning!
Although, you and I have both been on the losing and winning side of football. I treasure all the times you and I were bundled up in freezing temps watching our Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead. That was fun too!
Miss you my friend.
Brenda ....only daughter says
That was the most nerve racking game. As I told you my heart was racing I was having trouble breathing felt like I was having an anxiety attack. Then they won, it was so exciting for them and all of us. As you know I have never been into sports, you got me into the royals last year. I’m so glad you did.????????????????????????⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️
NO FOOTBALL ,NO BASKETBALL PLEASE!!!!!!
You are so funny my sweet daughter….I love that you are so “into” baseball and you are such a fast learner that one would think you had been following this sport for years. Plus, it has been so much fun texting back and forth during each and every game….perhaps I love it because it brings you closer to me through sports, even tho we are separated by many miles. 😉
OK….NO football…. as we must let your blood pressure return to normal…that is after the World Series starting Tuesday!
Luv ya and lots of hugs from Florida to Kansas.
