October 2014 will always be remembered as a special month in Kansas City.
The Royals ended a 29-year postseason drought with a magical journey. In turn, the city, slowly but then more assuredly, painted itself blue.
Fountains. Bridges. The top of City Hall and the top of the Power & Light Building. All lit up in blue.
Co-workers you’d never seen in a T-shirt showed up in blue.
Yes, it would have been sweeter if the Royals had beat the Giants to take the World Series crown.
But this doesn’t change: This was the October we were blue, and we couldn’t have been happier, or prouder.
