Take me out to the ballgame...

The Royals are back!  We at UA happen to be very big fans!  Why?  Because we got to grow up with the Royals (well not me...I was in Texas, but immediately became a fan when I moved to KC).  We got to watch them grow from a terrible team to a team of kids who went on to become World Series Champs!  In fact-almost all of our fans are Royals fans too...looking at you Cody and your Cardinals!

Since we began the blog, we have done several Royals adventures.  It's hard to pick a favorite, so I decided to highlight a few.  

From Opening Day in 2016 where Billy filled in for me...and I believe there was a shot luge...Andrea's work vendors really know how to put on a tailgate!!  

There was also that one time that we brought a pig grill to tailgate!  Thank goodness someone had a lighter we could borrow to light the 4-6 charcoal briquettes!!  How else could we cook 1 hotdog at a time!

And another time where we attended Diamond of Dreams and pretended to be fancy while we got to meet players...and listen to a sweet LeAnn Rimes concert.  My teenage self was so pumped to hear her sing!

...or the time that we celebrated 50 seasons at Boulevard and hung out with Alex Gordon!  Our favorite beers and our favorite team...can't go wrong!!

We have so many good times cheering at the K!  I can't wait to see what the 50th season brings!!  As a fun throwback...here are some pics from pre-blog days!

We laughed and cried as we said goodbye to some of our favorites last season.  But hold out hope that we won't have too much rebuilding in 2018.  No matter what we will be cheering on the Boys in Blue!
