Weekly Photo Challenge: Today Was a Good Day   16 comments


June 17, 2015 was a good day. Not only did the Kansas City Royals roll over the Milwaukee Brewers 10-2, but I was able to get a few decent photographs as well, perched up in the stands between third base and left field. The final photo will show you where I sat.

The first photograph is of Lorenzo Cain, last year’s MVP of the American League playoff series. The second is of Mike “Moose” Moustakis, the third-baseman, watching a foul ball that had already whizzed past him. Every time Moose does something in the field, even just catching a ball and throwing it to first base, or just walking up to bat, the entire crowd (seemingly} yells out “M-o-o-o-o-o-o-se”. To the uninitiated it might sound like, “B-o-o-o-o-o-o”. The third photo is Ryan Madson, one of the vaunted relief corps of the Royals.

It was a great day watching the Royals light up the scoreboard, but alas, no home runs for the Royals. Fortunately, none for the Brewers, either. (Did I actually say, “alas”?)
