Bye Bye Royals......
Yesterday was the Royals last game of the season. Although we are not die hard fans, an occasional game or two is fun. We managed to make it to two games this season and also went to the T-Bones twice. It was the last game for Buddy Bell, the manager, and for Mike Sweeney, the first baseman. Dave and the boys were down front during the National Anthem and got some good pics of Mike up close. Dave said Mike had a hard time during the National Anthem. Can't imagine how hard it must be for him to walk away after all these years.
During the whole game, Kris kept saying "GO TBONES!!" I'd say, "No Kris, Go Royals," and he would respond with "GO TBONES!!" He was so enthusiastic about it, I just gave up after awhile. The game ended with two injuries though, a fan a couple of sections away got hit with a fly ball, and moments later, Alex Gordon, the third baseman, got it right above the eyes. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time even though the Royals lost, AGAIN!!
