The Royals played a blue-collar style of baseball that made the fans, the media, and the nation respect what they were doing in spite of going against the grain to accomplish the ultimate goal.

When they lost Game 7 in 2014, fans stayed in their seats chanting ‘Thank you Royals’ for all they had given them.

So no, I’m not willing to let a few weeks of bad baseball sour for me all the good memories that came with 2014 and 2015. Those players delivered a product that has created a lifetime of positive moments that I’ll be able to reflect back upon.

For now, I’m content just watching the team I love and the players who made that time great, suit up for what may be their final ride. As those players start to depart either by way of free agency, trade, or retirement, perhaps then I’ll grow restless.

Please don’t let my romanticized view of the game spoil your negativity, anger, or frustration should those be the ways you choose to be a fan, but maybe it’s time we stopped trying to decide which fans are the best fans and collectively avert that fanatic attention towards the team.

Not everyone is going to agree with your opinion, and that’s okay. But in the end, there’s really no wrong way to be a fan of the Kansas City Royals.
