But this season, the stars are lining up. Having watched nearly every ball game this season, it's been one heck of a journey. From watching our rise and fall and rise again through the standings day in and day out, this journey has been a long one. Sometimes this season alone has felt like 29 years. Heck, the Wild Card game against the Oakland A's seemed to last at least 20 years!
For Kansas City, we have needed this. It's been 29 years since our city clinched a playoff spot, won the American League Pennant or rose to the occasion of playing in the biggest series in all of baseball.
The city is blue, Sung Woo is back and we have one of the most dynamic group of players to ever put on a Royals uniform. Kansas City, this is our time. We are Royal!
