My dear friends ……
I am Royal Blue today!
Not blue from sadness but Kansas City Royal Blue as is the whole city in Kansas City, MO because it finally happened! The above pic is of Union Station and you can see it is blue all over.
The Kansas City Royals won the World Series after a 30 year drought! The Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium …which sits right next to Kaufman Stadium in the sports complex ….sent their congratulations!
I am so happy for this team….they have what we call “heart”!.
They did Take The Crown! …and as per usual, the catcher Salvadore Perez always sneaks up and dumps water on a player that stands out in any given game…. and this time, he dumped the water on the Manager, Ned Yost! And the fun part was Ned actually saw him coming and turned into the water being dumped. I would say Ned Yost is one proud manager.
and I loved this little boy trick or treating on Saturday night. He dressed like “Salvy” and carried his orange tub of water. How original for a costume is that?
So there doesn’t need to be much said….other than Congratulations to a great team of players. They are all like family to each other and to their fans and coaches. Below is the batting line-up and their nicknames….I have posted this before, but it sort of epitomizes the closeness of this team to all of us!
Everything is Blue in Kansas City….
The local news desks…..
Fountains!!! And there are many of them. Kansas City is known as the city of fountains!
Isn’t Royal blue a pretty color? 😉
As I have said in other posts….I have supported this team when they didn’t win many games at all and so this is a very special win for all the Kansas City Royal Fans.
Congratulations to a job well done!
Have a great Monday and hugs to all of you….
