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!

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.
