Do You Believe Yet?

After centerfielder Carlos Beltran smashed a 2-run walkoff Home Run in the bottom of the 10th, the first-place Kansas City Royals found themselves taking 3 of 4 from the best team in the AL at Kauffman Stadium.
To put it in perspective, were it not for a bottom of the ninth Grand Slam by All-Star Outfielder and former MVP Ichiro two nights previous (off fellow All-Star and Rookie flamethrowing KC closer Mike MacDougal), The surprising Royals would have been sweeping the Seattle Mariners back to the West Coast.

Instead of questioning why or how this can happen, go see it for yourselves. Take the family to the park. Go see this generation's next great players today.
Take in the sights and the smells of this wonderful summer in Kansas City.

You see, I envy every one of you. Here I am, a thousand miles away from the K, and I want so badly to attend not one game, but all of the games.

Now it's time to drink in the new names: Sweeney, Beltran, Berroa, Relaford, Hernandez, Affeldt, Snyder, Lima, May, MacDougal, Randa, Mayne, Ibanez...and many more.

Come on, Kansas City! It's time to stand up and...
