Royals Baby!

So as alot of you may already know I am a die hard Kansas City Royals fan. Knowing this, it may seem fitting that on my birthday June 26th,Tuesday, I went to see my beloved Royals play Angels at Angel stadium. Going into the game the Royals at one a suprising game 1 of a three game series against one of the hottest teams in baseball. I was excited...could the Royals actually pull out a win on my birthday? You see, I have only seen the Royals win 1 out of the past 6 games I had been to. Well most of you Angels fans know the rest of this story...the Royals won on my birthday 12-4 and finished a shocking sweep of the Angels today with a 1-0 win. The reason behind my blog entry is not only to rub KC's sweep of the Angels in the faces of all the Angels fans out there, but also to pose a daring question. Can this be the year of the Royals long awaited turn around? After years of last place finishes, terrible player personal moves by ex-general manager David Glass, and starting lineups that look more suitable for a AA farm team...could this be the year in which all the promising prospects finally live up to their potential? My personal opinion? Absolutely. I would be as bold to say that my beloved Royals ride this momentum wave long enough to secure a spot in this years playoffs. Think about it...its possible. The Royals are currently 13 1/2 games out of first place. The 1995 Mariners were 13 1/2 games out of first at the begining of August before their eventual division championship 2 months later. The Royals are one month ahead of that pace! All I'm sayin' is this..you better jump on the bandwagon now because the Royals are taking off into a whole different stratosphere...

You know what? Even though I am not a Royals fan, your dedication almost makes me want to want to be one. True fans, Aaron, are a treasure to any team.
I, personally, am an Angel's fan (God's team). - because there ain't no party like a West Coast Party.
