Johnson County commissioners dabbed women’s perfume behind their ears Thursday to bring good luck to the Royals.

The Avon perfume, handed out in tiny vials and labeled only with a strip of paper saying “Go Royals,” was inspired by catcher Salvador Perez’s and shortstop Alcides Escobar’s admissions during a television interview that they wear perfume for good luck.

Whatever it takes.
