Kansas City Symphony Challenges the New York Philharmonic

Michael Stern mentions that he has rooted for the Mets in the past, and might again in the future, as a born and bred New Yorker. But "home is where the heart is and we have heart in Kansas City!!"

The Royals are in it to win it! Chin up!

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York.

If you've been reading my blog, you already know this.

Kansas City's last World Series win was not even a blip on my radar in 1985. Married a little over a year and trying to cope with graduate school and trying to make a living were what I was concerned about.

We did not arrive in KC until mid-August 1993.
George Brett in 1990, Designated Hitter
I believe that was the year George Brett retired.  And at that point, I could not care less about the Sports page in the local paper.

Now, the Royals will take on the Toronto Blue Jays for the ALCS.   

And I'm a little scared. The difficulty we have had with them this year is that they tend to crowd the plate. And if we pitch inside, we...I say we...not me, I'm not a pitcher!!!

There was a little chin music back in early August. And a little retribution. And bench clearing. But according to Lee Judge, the umpires have to let the Royals pitch inside.

My not so humble opinion is that the Blue Jays should not kvetch. If they step right up to the plate and curve themselves over it, they're in the line of fire. And if they don't hit the pitch, well...
