Royals are on the verge of making even more history in World Series

The Kansas City Royals are three wins from something that hasn’t been done in half a century — forget the 29-year drought, the franchise didn’t even exist 50 years ago. The Royals were a game under .500 just three months ago, on July 22. No World Series winner in 50 years has been under .500 as late in a season as these Royals.

If nothing else, these Royals have proved themselves to be fantastically resilient. And in the list of holes they’ve played themselves out of, a 7-1 loss to the Giants in the first game of the World Series on Tuesday would not even earn a medal. But the Royals shouldn’t kid themselves either.

Pulling out a close victory over Chargers can be a big boost to Chiefs

They are rested after a bye week, and now carry the swagger of a team that just won in the most encouraging, yes-we-can way a team can win – their quarterback leading them down the field in the last two minutes for the winning points.

But to make this journey, owner David Glass had to accept that his leadership pushed the Royals into becoming a punchline. He would need help pushing them back to the top.
