Royals Back In Post-Season For First Time Since '85


The HQ just thought this was a cool happening last night...

The Kansas City Royals, with their win Friday night, clinched their first post-season bid in almost three decades.

Closer Greg Holland has been solid at the back all year long and, with a lot of blue in the crowd at Comiskey, the visotors got the win over the White Sox and made it to play one more game.

Here's Jeremy Guthrie firing up the other Royals once they clinched a spot in the post-season and got to bathe each other in the clubhouse. had some cool comparisons about the current roster with the last time the team was in:

In 1985, more than half of the Royals' current active roster had not yet been born. Yordano Ventura, DOB June 3, 1991, wasn't even a thought in his parents' minds. Lorde, the New Zealand songstress behind the team's somewhat unofficial anthem, wasn't born until 1996.

Wade Davis and Greg Holland were born in September and October of the Royals' last postseason year.

The wreck of the Titanic was discovered. The first Nintendo system was released in America, on which you played Super Mario for the first time. You bought "We Are the World" because you liked Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie. You read the inaugural strip of Calvin and Hobbes.

And that is just a small sample of it...

Congrats to y'all and whaddya want to bet the Braves might make the token play for their old assistant GM in the process...???
