The Midnight Assassins. The 11th Inning Specialists. The Wizard of Hos. Raisin' Cain. These are just some of the clever monikers used to describe the Kansas City Royals and some of the players. How fun!
If you haven't heard, the Kansas City Royals are in the playoffs for the first time in 29 years. I was 14 the last time they were crowned World Series Champs. It was the era of George Brett, Dan Quisenberry, Bret Saberhagen, Frank White, Willie Wilson, Dick Howser and so many more. While I wasn't that into baseball then, there was no mistaking the energy and magic that engulfed our city. Everybody knew the names and face.
And now we're back. And it's just as energetic, fun and magical as it was 19 years ago.
Tonight is our third game against the Baltimore Orioles. We opened a big ol' can on them for the first two games in this Best of 7 series. Boy, wouldn't another sweep be sweet?
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing ... Keep It Real.
