When I was in elementary school, I went to Royals games with my girl scout troop to hand out the giveaways. It was a pretty good gig because we got to keep two of what we were handing out and watch the game after the second inning. Plus, my parents gave me $10 to spend on hot dogs and popcorn, which was my primary motivation for going.
Some things never change.
When I was in my early 20s, I went to Royals games to socialize. I mostly stood with my back to the field unless the rest of the crowd started cheering, and I would cheer too.
Then, something happened. I grew up and became a sports fan. I learned the rules and got to know the players really really well. We travelled with them. We started watching them play every single night. After a while, I started to feel like I know them.
Now I go to Royals game to see them win.
We are going to the World Series. Unbelievable! 💙⚾️👑 #TakeTheCrown #beroyalkc
