Long Time Coming!!! 2014-09-27 13:33:29

By Marcus Austin, National OurTown News Editor,

     The long wait for a playoff appearance for the Kansas City Royals is finally over.  The Royals have clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 1985.  With a couple of games to go in the season there is still an outside chance that the Royals can win the division.  Nonetheless, the Royals partied in Chicago like it was 1985.

     With the Kansas City Chiefs playing the New England Patriots on monday night at Arrowhead Stadium, the Royals may be playing a playoff game the same day. This could be one of the greatest days in Kansas City sports history.

     Now that the Royals have made the playoffs, should we dare to dream about a World Series.  With all of the rioting and unrest in St. Louis, an I-70 series part II would be a welcomed relief, especially if the results turned out the same as before.
