After a crazy Royals win, I tried to sleep but couldn’t, so I thought I would write some post-game reaction instead. All I can say is, wow. What. A. Win.
Wow. This is the first daily prompt that I ever responded to, and it’s quite the prompt for a first time. Here it is:
You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?
There are a plethora of people I could ask, and an even bigger plethora of questions I could ask. But I suppose I would actually give it to….myself. Yes, myself.
A city watched as the ball hung in the air for what seemed like an eternity. Wrapped in that ball was 29 years worth of losing, misery, animosity, disappointment, and somehow, hope. A city watched as gravity brought the ball back down, and into the glove of Salvador Perez.
A city exploded into triumphant joy, as they witnessed a moment that some had been waiting their entire life to see. Perez and Hosmer embraced at the plate, a picture that would soon go viral, and will now be the symbol of victory for at the least the next month, but possibly the next year.
In my 18 years of existence, I’ve never been more excited for the last four games of a Royals baseball season. Why? Because they are going to clinch a playoff spot.
The Royals, who face the Chicago White Sox in the last four days of the regular season, have a chance to clinch a playoff spot in any game. That’s right, any game. They would most likely be clinching a wildcard spot, but I don’t care. I can finally say my Kansas City Royals made it to the playoffs.
Yesterday, I linked to Flavia Lozano’s blog, which is about Flavia’s experience studying abroad in Italy. As I said in my comment yesterday, I’ve always been interested in traveling to different parts of the world. Getting to see a glimpse of what is out there is very inspiring.
I am currently studying French as a freshmen in college, but would love to get the opportunity to travel to France and actually experience the language rather than learn the language.
