Postseason Rules My Life

Being from Kansas City and born in 1985, I am soooo super pumped that the Royals are in Postseason AGAIN! I wasn't even born when KC went to the World Series in 1985, last year was BEYOND awesome, and now this year is even more amazing.  I grew up sitting on the hill outside the stadium watching the Friday night fireworks and earning tickets to the game for doing good things at school. Jen and I would be 20 game packs and go to as many games as possible when we were both in grad school. Now, we still go to as many games as possible, but we don't buy the packs. 

We do have watch parties at our houses, which is lots of fun. It helps that Jen is renting a house 5 houses down from me and G. Judge all you want, but that's a really short walk to go home after a game. 

I couldn't contain my excitement for the ALDS game we went to versus the Houston Astros. 

And then it rained. A lot. 

So much rain that the game was delayed and we went and hid. 

On a totally un-related note, I went on the 6th grade field trip to Arrowhead and got to go inside the Chiefs locker room and on the field. 

It was soon much fun! All the kids were making fun of me for taking photos, but how many times do you get to go onto the field of a professional sports team? 

This past weekend we went to ALCS game 2 versus the Toronto Blue Jays. 

Jen is super pumped and so is the rando photo bomber who was loving my selfie stick. 

This is our group to a T. No joke. 

Our friends Lucy and Steve came and tailgated with us, which was soooo much fun! We had to take a family photo with the selfie stick. 

This is our we JUST WON face. Jen had never seen a postseason win in person and we stayed around the stadium watching the post game gatorade dunk by Salvy, the players all high-fiving, and the interviews. 

One of the nicest ladies sitting behind saw me struggling to take our photo and took this awesome shot with the stadium behind us! I LOVE it! Probably one of the better photos we've taken. 

I just bought this shirt. It's a reference to Trap Queen by Fetty Wap, Lorenzo Cain's walk up song. At one point the Royals were fining each other for not saying 1738 in interviews (again a reference to Fetty Wop). I wish there weren't question marks, but whatevs. 

I attempted to buy this shirt, which said it was available Saturday morning, but Instagram lied. It's not out in stores until Monday. It's a reference to Royals TV announcer Rex Hudler who says that Royals play "small ball" hitting little "links, doinks, bloops, and blasts." During games it makes me laugh when he says, "oh, there's another blooper! He just needs a good  doink" Who doesn't need a good doink?

Who are you all rooting for? Do you even care about postseason?

What's Happening Now

I've been up to the most random things lately. We've gone to a few more Royals game and are hoping to get some post-season tickets (which would be Thursday and Friday of this week so far). 

Jen and I got some stuff signed by Moose (KC Royals 3rd basemen). I have to admit, for as much as he looks slightly chunky in his uniform, he looked totally white guy hottie normal in person.

We went to the last Saturday game with my Uncle and his lady. As always, G doesn't wear sunglasses and complains the sun in his eyes. 

Our view! 

We literally sat in the last row... I thought we would faint from the change in altitude. 

The TV died while I was trying to watch the Royals game... so... 

We went and bought a new one. It's slightly larger and got wifi! Compared to my 2008 tv this is a huge upgrade! I can now play all the YouTube videos I want! 

This happened. 

I also had an unintentional ladies night. We had tickets to a USA soccer game... then realized it was the 23 and under team. Which we don't care about, so we stayed in and couch drank. We also had a Whip and Nae Nae dance party, which G filmed I just couldn't get the balls to put that on the internet. 

I also got 2 new curling wands from NuMe and wanted to try them out, so the girls let me play on their hair. If you want a review or tutorial let me know! Curling wands were a new venture for me, I just took the clip off one of my curling irons and called it good. 

Bae and I went to see Martian with Matt Damon in 3D. My thoughts? It was long and at least Tom Hanks had Wilson. Just sayin'. 

Tigger has been crazy lately and G managed to catch it on film. I don't even know how he manages to do all this crazy stuff, but I knew you guys would love it. If you've got any pets, do they have special powers? 

Not only do we have the craziest animals in our house, we have them outside as well. G is the squirrel whisperer and had this rabies infested creature crawling all over him. I didn't even know what to do with this. 

Expect more pictures of me celebrating Blue October to come soon!
