man of faith

last year one of my professors saw me walk into class, and he exclaimed, “now there is a man of faith.” he said this because of the shirt i was wearing. and no, it was not a christian t-shirt.

wearing a royals jersey in october sets you apart, even in kansas city.

why do i still believe in the royals?

– my earliest memory is watching bret saberhagen pitch in game seven of the 1985 world series.

– my sons wanted to read the 2006 royals program guide before bedtime tonight.

– being from nebraska, how can i not believe in alex gordan?

– the odds are, at least one decent pitcher will come through the ranks. maybe this year.

– maybe this year.

and so i ask, who cares if the fantasy top 100 players include a total of 0 royals?

who cares if we have to face the red sox on opening day?

who cares if you could field just about an entire all-star team of former royals now playing elsewhere?

who cares if i like powder blue?

i believe.

One thought on “man of faith

  1. Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
    Man never Is, but always To be blest:
    The soul, uneasy and confin’d from home,
    Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

    -Alexander Pope,
    An Essay on Man, Epistle I, 1733
