Royals Fever Sweeps Through KC
I logged into Facebook this afternoon to find the following three status updates in my newsfeed…
Jackie Kitterman…ROYALS!! …that’s a sweep!
Jimmy Peddicord…Royals are 3 and 0!
Brady Madsen predicts 162-0. Just 159 to go.
Royals fever is in the air, and I could not be more excited about having the opportunity to be part of this team. The fever was evident last weekend when the K Crew visited a Brigade game at the Sprint Center. Fans went crazy when they saw the K Crew armed with royals.com T-Shirts. Even the fans at the Brigade game knew it was time for baseball season and the K Crew T-Shirt Launch.
Just Tuesday night, we had our walk-through before the big home opener, which is just FIVE days away. We had another photo shoot before learning everything you can imagine about Kauffman Stadium. I’m not going to lie–it was a tiny bit overwhelming, but there was something extremely exciting about walking up onto the field that night. The lights were on, CrownVision was looking incredible, the grass was freshly cut… As I looked around at everyone stepping onto the field, I think we were all feeling the excitement and honor of being a K Crew member.
Not only does the K Crew bring excitement and honor, but also celebrity. To benefit the Autism Alliance, Jacqueline and Kristin were celebrity servers tonight at Beauchamp’s on the Rail in Lee’s Summit. Other celebrity servers included Kansas City Chiefs players. The news and excitement of the Royals’ sweep over Detroit filled the restaurant.
After the game today, I text messaged a friend of mine all excited about the sweep. He first wrote back, “Haha yes, I’m proud you heard!” This was him thinking he’s funny because in the past, I haven’t always been as up to date with Royals knowledge as I’m certainly going to be this year! He then went on to write, “I know, I’m definitely excited about their season. What a good year to be a K Crew member!”
With everyone around me so excited about the team, it makes everything I’m getting to do that much more exciting–from putting on our jerseys to having the opportunity to spend these “extra innings” with you!
It’s a GREAT day to be a Royals fan…
