The Midwest-nice burghers of Kansas City have been celebrating their team’s World Series victory since early Monday morning when a Wade Davis fastball nailed down the Royals’ first world championship since 1985. But while joy has been unconfined in KC, celebrations have been peaceful if noisy.
Things may return to what passes for normal after today’s downtown parade. Schools are closed for the occasion and 200K are expected to show up to honor this very talented, very young, and very entertaining team.
Celebrating to this point has including some fireworks, lots of driving around and whooping, as well as some dancing in the streets. Surely a fair amount of adult beverage has been consumed. I wouldn’t be shocked to learn of a hangover or two. See some Kansas City Star photos here of Royals boosters making a joyful noise.
