You know, some sports fans are fair weather fans, they only like their team when the team is winning. Then there are the diehard fans that love their team no matter what and will defend the team to the end. I'm somewhere in the middle with the Kansas City Royals because they aren't just a team to me, they're a part of growing up in KC!
Maybe since my growing up in KC and going to Royals games consists of the last fifteen years or so, I never really cared if the Royals won or lost. I just loved the games! From the lemonade guy screaming "LEE-MO-NADE, LEE-MO-NADE, LEEEEEEEEEEE-MO-NADE!" to posing for pictures with Slugger to running wildly down the winding exit ramps from the nosebleed seats, I've created lots of great memories with family and friends.
Royals games mean:
Summer, chocolate frosty malts, catching fly balls, REALLY expensive diet cokes, peanuts, begging my parents for a twenty dollar tee-shirt when I was a kidlet, getting an AMAZING Carlos Beltran bobble head doll, getting an UNAMAZING sunburn with a shorts line on my legs, trying but never catching a hot dog from the hot dog gun that shoots in the stands, seeing George Brett get a hair cut at my old hair place, and a million other great things. So whenever they win or lose, I'll always love my Royals. As I write this, they are out of last place by one game!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Share your Royals memories!!! Here's a pic of me and some of my best friends enjoying a night at the K last week...
