But, let's rewind just a bit. Simply for the sake of documentation.
This past Saturday Scott and I made the 6.5 hour drive to San Francisco to watch Game 4.
When we arrived to AT&T Park it was impossible to ignore the energy and electricity surrounding the entire place. It was as if the stadium had come alive, and we were there, in the midst of it all, experiencing it.
I wanted so badly to join that blue group. It would have been even more magical to be surrounded by fellow Royals fans.
The actual game… Well, it was pretty great through the fourth inning, when we were leading 4-0. Then, it kind of all went to Hell in a hand basket. Without going into all the agonizing details, we watched as the 4-0 lead was blown, and the final score was Royals - 4 Giants - 11. Ouch.
Clearly the end score wasn't what we had hoped it would be. BUT, words cannot express what it was like to be there to experience, be apart of, the World Series.
|See the faint rainbow in the bay (left third of the picture)? I think it's a sign. We won't be flooded with 29 more years of Royals heartache and World Series-less seasons.|
Though our Boys in Blue fell to the Giants last night in Game 7, the Royals certainly did something this entire season - not just Games 1-7 of the Series - that hasn't been done in 29 years; they brought the love of baseball back to Kansas City and back to the loyal fans.
To the Royals, thank you so much for a phenomenal season. We can wait to see what 2015 brings!
