The first Major League Baseball game seven in eleven years will happen tonight between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants. It’s tremendous for the game of baseball. I love it. Sorta.
I hate the Giants. But I hate the Royals more. I really do. Forgive me.
Kansas City drive me a little crazy. It starts with Mama’s Family, the city trying to steal our beloved Pittsburgh Penguins, their fascination with BBQ joints, Ned Yost and most importantly their long suffering claim to be the most persecuted baseball fanbase–their attempt to claim they are more miserable than Pirates fans.
MLB World Series Game Seven is about to happen. All that talent the Royals assembled over their suck-ti-tude years is growing up. But let’s face it… the talent the Royals traded away for more veteran talent, while the stat heads lost their mind, is paying off too. It’s the ultimate pay off, the Royals are staring the San Francisco Giants dead in the eye and have pushed them to the thing every baseball fan dreams about.. It’s the unicorn of Major League Baseball. The game baseball loving children across the country dream about in their backyards. It’s MLB World Series Game Seven.
And it’s in Kansas City.

The freaking Royals and Giants. A 25-year old rookie pitched a gem in game six for the Royals. God it was beautiful to watch. As much as we hate the Royals, there isn’t a lot of love about the Giants. But we do anyway.
Screw you Erik Kratz.
It’s so damn joyful thinking that Royals fans have been waiting since 1985 to win the World Series. But tonight that misery just might disappear. The grieving that always comes up in casual conversation, might be over.
Heh, take a number you ugly blue shersey wearing bastards, it’s been since 1979 for Pittsburgh.
God, I think I am jealous.
Yeah, I definetly am.
