What a Day To Be A Royals Fan!


This is the day. This one day. This day after opening day, when we as Kansas City Royals fans can celebrate. A day when Royals fans can say, “We are in first place in the division.” A day when we can say, “We are undefeated.” A day to savor for all that it is worth.

Today we can say, we have beaten the Tigers – the Detroit Tigers, considered by many to be one of the very best teams in all of baseball this year. We beat the Tigers, on the road, on opening day, in extra innings! It really doesn’t get much better than that – especially for Royals fans.

The winning pitcher was Leo Nunez, of all people! (My wife calls him “Little Leo.”) Alex Gordon has one of the sweetest swings – ever. And he absolutely CRUSHED that home run ball; it probably hasn’t come down yet. And Tony Pena Jr., if you can believe it, drove in the winning run in the eleventh inning. Tony freakin’ Pena!

Tomorrow – who knows? I don’t want to think about it. But today, my friends, it is time to celebrate. It is time to party. It is time to feel good in Kansas City! Royals win!

Enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm a Reds fan. We lost opening day. Good preparation for the rest of the season.

a day you can say "Hey, we have a better record than the Cardinals."

After your move, you're gonna have to be a Cardinals fan. Springfield Cardinals, that is.

You know...this looks horribly similar to your post at the outset of last year's pathetic Royal's season.

Just because you changed your uniform to match the legendary '85 season doesn't mean that the Royals will be anywhere near same caliber of team. The Royals need more than new clothes to make them a good ball club.

And yeah, yeah...the Cards lost yesterday...blah, blah, blah...
