Let me just start this post by apologizing for the extremely excessive amount of exclamation points and bolded words. Okay, now that you’ve been warned…It’s 2 days later and I’m still on a high from the Royals vs. Athletics Wild Card game. Seth and I bought tickets the day they went on sale and thank goodness we didn’t miss it. It’s possible that I will never again in my life see a game that is more exciting, thrilling and a roller coaster ride of emotions that equals this one.
For those of you that have been living under a rock, the Kansas City Royals haven’t played in the Post Season since 1985 (when the won the World Series), 29 years ago. I just turned 28 so if you do that complicated math it equals: My Whole Life.
I’m sure there are some of you that are already bored with this post, and to you I say, I don’t care. I realize it’s difficult to put into words the craziness and emotions that were filling Kauffman Stadium and the sea of blue the fans were wearing on Tuesday night but it was literally a once in a lifetime experience.
Imagine 40,502 people all on their feet, cheering at the top of their lungs, waving their rally towels in the air, chanting “Let’s go Royals, let’s go” and watching “THEIR TEAM” come from behind not once but twice to win the game in the 12th inning! UNBELIEVABLE!!! These kinds of things don’t happen everyday people.
We are heading back to Kauffman on Sunday to watch them play game 3 of the ALDS. Let’s all cross our fingers and pray for a win!
Here’s a little sampling of the day through photos and a short video. Enjoy!
