How 'bout those Royals!?!?!?!

As I sit here and write this blog out Kansas City Royals are have opened the 2008 baseball season with a series sweep of the Detroit Tigers.  The Tigers made some major off-season moves and are many "baseball experts" pick to win the World Series and our team of up and coming stars went in there and basically kicked some behind.  It was fun to watch this team play throughout the week.  The last time we started a season 3-0 was in 2003 when we started 9-0 and held a 6 game lead on our division at the All Star Break.  That season didn't end with us end the playoffs, but it was certainly an exciting summer.  Royals fans everywhere were in good spirits with lots of optimism.  Wouldn't it be great if this summer brought the same kind of excitement about Royals baseball.  Now it is no secret that we have a young team that is unlikely to fight for a playoff spot come September.  However, this squad showed some great signs of good things to come.  There is certainly reason to hope if you are a Royals fan.  I'm more excited for the baseball season than I have been in a long time.  Maybe it is partly because the Chiefs aren't showing many signs of improving.  Who knows what the Royals can do this year.  If they can stay in it through most of the summer and give us a ride like we had in 2003, the future is looking more than brights and you have to expect an improvement in 2009 and 2010.

What are your thoughts about the boys in blue?  Was the first series of the year a fluke or are we in for a 2003 like ride...or even better a 1985 style journey???  Its fun to dream...
