Here we are - day one of the World Series. I'll be the first to admit - I haven't watched a game in 29 years, but something about these playoffs, and this team - these Royals - awakened something in me and I can't get enough. The teams they have played are good teams - great teams even, but these Royals - our boys in blue - are magic. It is amazing to feel what they have done for our city. It's electric. Buzzing with excitement here - everywhere you go someone says - how 'bout those boys in blue? Are you watching the Royals? And people smile. Our city - which some consider fly-over country - may not be the most exciting place to some people - we don't have beaches or mountains - but our city - Kansas City - here in the heartland? Has HEART. These Royals have shown that over and over again in the last few weeks. These Royals have helped shift the consciousness of the country about Kansas City. I have read so many great things about our town from people who don't live here, and I am proud to call myself a Kansas Citian. Does it matter if we win the Series? No - at the end of the day, it's sports, we're not curing cancer, but we are HUNGRY to win it. And if we don't it's all good. We'll still have our boys in blue and their magic. We'll still have our heart. And I for one? Can't wait for spring 2015 to come around. Now go slay some Giants.
