ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Royals 4, Twins 3

Eight wins in a row for the Royals. 10 wins in their last 12 games. Huh.

Things that hadn’t happened yet since the last time the Royals won eight games in a row: Lance Armstrong had only four Tour de France titles, Arnold Schwarzenegger hadn’t been governor of California, LeBron James hadn’t been drafted into the NBA, Chris Lubanski hand not been selected fifth overall by the Royals, Hurricane Katrina was two years away, the first iPhone was four years away, and Finding Nemo hadn’t been released.

What I’m saying is that it’s been a while since the Royals last won eight games in a row.

Royals take on the Twins at 12:10 this afternoon to wrap up the series.
