World Series Game Two
The Royals won the second game of the World Series! They are precious to Kansas City and we are absolutely thrilled to be on this ride. Already, I read in the sports news and hear on TV that we are seeing this team play their last few games together. Players will begin to leave as free agents. Different teams will invite our Royals to be among them and not us. This is it -- the bright shining moment. This Royals now. You get what you want and everything changes. We are left with memories of winning through struggle, with awesome plays and never saying we can't do it. Always, "expect a miracle" -- always, a "Let's Go Royals" -- always, Eric and Moose and Salvador and Alcedes and Chris and Johnny and Lorenzo and Kendrys and Gerad and all the actuality of youth and physical fitness and focus, patience and dream into reality. The famous fountains of Kansas City turned blue, the flags on the Country Club Plaza saluted the Royals, the Power and Light District lit up, blue and white pumpkins showed up at the market, victory signs flashed between strangers wearing blue Royals shirts and jerseys. A time, a joyous time of joys shared. To the Royals, ". . . no one like you has been before you and no one like you shall arise after you." (1 Kings 3:12) And appropriately from Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star: "Savor the 2015 Royals. Because when the team returns to Kansas City next week, you may not see any baseball. You may have to settle for a parade."
