A Royal Run

For the last month, we have donned rally caps, 10408530_10100294447292729_2490667689998617481_n

We have both sat through years of 100+ loss seasons.  We have attended games and faithfully cheered on our boys in blue.  We were both born with Royal Blue blood in our veins.  We attended as many games as we could while dating and throughout our marriage so far, and we will continue to take great joy in taking our children to games at the K for many years to come.

This season has been the most fun season to watch and experience so far in our lives (well at least that we can actually remember – we don’t remember 1985).

This season, we have were able to take our daughter to her first baseball game.

We were able to watch OUR TEAM in the World Series.

It was a record breaking, history making, whirlwind of an October, and while we are heartbroken that we fell short of winning it all, we are just so darn proud of what this year’s Royals team did.

For the last 30 days, the entire city, from the fountains to the attire of nearly everyone we passed on the street, has been Royal Blue.  Every where we went we could hear people talking about the team that we love.  It seemed like people all over the country were jumping on the Royals bandwagon and cheering on this team that we love so much.

Be proud Kansas City Royals fans.  Our team had an incredible run.  We showed the entire country that baseball is relevant in Kansas City.  Now, let’s just pray that we get the chance to have October baseball again next year!
