The Last Homestand…but not the last blog!
Sometimes life gets a little crazy, and I need reminders to update my favorite blog! These reminders can come from a Post-It note on my desk at work, sometimes from my boss here at the Royals, but my favorite reminders come from fans that are checking the blog…such as this super excited fan who dominated the Upper Deck Match Game! Ryan, you were awesome, and I absolutely loved your very excited message and reminder to get this blog up! Thanks for being such a great fan!!!!
Katie and I are posing with our favorite fan from Argentina!!! We made a super special delivery to give him a t-shirt for his excited Royals spirit! Muchas gracias for cheering for the Royals while in the USA!!
Okay, so these next pictures aren’t fans, but just some really awesome people that contribute to making The K my favorite place in all the world…
Here is Megan who started out the season as a fellow K Crew member, but as you can see from her snazzy clothes, she left the dugouts for an office job. She’s genuinely one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and just such a pleasure to work with at The K. Thanks for being so great and always so excited about the blog, Megan!
And everyone knows this guy that I was so excited to catch by himself for a minute to snap a picture for the blog! Thanks for the picture, Sluggerrr–you’re the best! No one gets the stadium clapping like you do! I feel so honored to get to work with you!
Now this next guy you might not recognize because he is behind the camera a lot, but you might have yelled, “HEY CAMERA MAN- GET ME ON SCREEN!” to him a couple of times this past season! I believe I’ve mentioned Jordan in a previous blog because he is seriously the best. I’ve had the extreme pleasure of working with him a lot this season, and he also does an excellent job at capturing the moments to put on CrownVision! Jordan- you’re awesome…with the camera of course, but also with some great advice you dispersed to Megan and me that last homestand! Thanks for such a fantastic season, and I can’t wait to see you next season!
And here is Tommy who was a huge help during my Live Shot out at the Royals Hall of Fame! He stepped in and did the play by play for us at the “You Make the Call” interactive experience. Super impressive, Tommy!
I saved these guys for last, because I especially liked something they said to me. As I was walking around talking to fans, these guys caught my eye. I know what you’re thinking–how could six ridiculously good looking guys NOT catch my eye? Well, you’re right, but also because generally when we see groups, we try to ask if they’re celebrating something special that we can help celebrate with them with some tattoos or pins or maybe even just a loud annoucement! So, I approached these rather handsome gentleman to inquire if there was a particular reason for their celebration…someone’s bachelor party or birthday maybe? They all kind of laughed and said no, and I explained that I just figured they must be celebrating something…and that’s when one of these great Royals fans goes, “Well we are! We’re here to celebrate the Royals!”
I couldn’t have put it better myself.
It’s a GREAT day to be a Royals fan…
P.S. Just because the season is over, doesn’t mean the blogging fun has to stop! I’ve actually already jotted down some notes for some blogs coming soon! In fact, here’s a sneak peak at the fun that is yet to come–one super awesome top 10 list that you don’t want to miss, some reflections from my last game of the season and highlights from K Crew’s end of the season party and awards ceremony!
