Stand up straight! Don’t slouch!
Ooops, not that kind of a slump!
Alas, my dear sports fans….my beloved Kansas City Royals are in a baseball slump.
Yes, they are even number one in the whole American League.
Yes, they are still number two behind the National League leaders, the St. Louis Cardinals.
And yes, they will most likely be having home field advantage in the play-offs.
Their last few games have been a bit difficult. They are either winning big or in a few games, losing big.
Nah….most teams don’t expect to win each of their 162 games in any given season.
For me, they are winners and will always be winners.
You know why? Because they are all good friends and they really care about each other and are excited when a team mate does something spectacular such as a grand slam home run by Mike Moustakas against the Baltimore Orioles the other night.
This team is humble. I have listened and watched almost every interview of these players and you don’t hear the word “I”. You hear “we”. And I have yet to hear one negative word about any of the opposing teams. Instead there is praise at their pitching, hitting and defensive playing on the field.
For this team, there is no jealousy, no one-up-man-ship, no pettiness…..just a young team having a good time playing a sport that they all love.
That can be rare in the field of sports in these days of large ego’s.
They are a very young team….with many players ranging in age from 23 to 26.
I am proud to call myself a loyal fan.
And tonight is another game….there are about 20 games left in this season.
Slump or no slump! Let’s Go Royals!
From one of your “ForeverRoyal” fans!
