The Kansas City Royals are headed to the World Series again this year!
I’ve been a baseball fan all my life …. we were Dodges fans when I was younger … the only name I can remember from back then was Steve Yeager … not sure why that name has stuck with me.
Fast forward several years …..Chase and Brooke were babies and I was up at all hours of the night … so I tuned it to the Atlanta Braves games.
Obsessed is the word you can use … I recorded and watched every Braves game that was on TV ….. I knew every player and loved Bobby Cox (the manager) I can still see him as he would walk to the mound to change pitchers. My most favorite player was Ryan Klesko … the funny thing is I disliked him during his first World Series appearance when he was just the DH … then something switched and he was my favorite.
Fast forward again to Kansas City … I had always been a National League fan … and the Royals always lost. I tried many times to get interested but it seemed every time we’d get a decent player … they were traded. So, I sorted dismissed them.
Until last year towards the end of the season … the rest is history … that’s also when I started posting on this site on a regular basis.
We went to Game 1 of the World Series … we bought Season Tickets and I knew in my heart we would be going to the World Series again (I’m sure glad my heart was right).
Buying those tickets has been such a blessing to our family and it has been worth every penny. We only bought two tickets and I think to date Brooke and I have gone to the most games.
Some days we go to the ball park early and some days we arrive at the last minute. To be honest it’s more fun to arrive early … people watching, eating, etc.
Brooke and I arrived early last week … and we spent our time making funny faces 🙂 We had so much fun!
I’ve always done everything I can to make our kids laugh and there was a period that both of them would roll their eyes at me (they still do at times) and say stop. I would always come back with “would you rather I be a stick in the mud?” LOL
That reminds me … my sister Kim and I laughed for over 30 minutes on the phone the other night … my stomach was hurting and I could hardly breathe … I love it!
The video below is another example …. they did not want to watch my video on Snap Chat …. and they did not want to laugh (but they did). You do not want to know how many times I had to film that video to make it without laughing!!
Oops …. It just hit me … this started out as a baseball post and I’ve gone down a rabbit hole.
I think I’ll stop now … must film some videos for Chic n Scratch and film the next two videos for my Double Slice Layer Cake Quilt Along.
