My family has lived here in WI for a couple of years now. We're from Kansas City, and we love baseball, so naturally, we LOVE the Kansas City Royals. Heck, we pay quite a bit of money to watch Royals games over the internet. Yeah, we're die-hards.
The Brewers are a LOT more accessible, being here in Wisconsin, and we cheer for them too (except when they played the Royals this summer). We love Miller Park and all its traditions and our son was excited to get to see Bernie Brewer go down his slide after a home run.
That said, it's REALLY easy to cheer for the Brewers this year, and that's because THEY'RE MADE UP OF FORMER ROYALS!
Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas helped my Kansas City Royals win a World Series, and Lorenzo is actually my favorite baseball player ever (I'm wearing a Cain Brewers shirt jersey as I type this). Those two players are so much fun to watch, and I'll forever be fans of theirs. I have so many wonderful memories of those too during their time with the Royals.
Erik Kratz was a backup catcher for the Royals, as was Manny Pina. Jeremy Jeffress was traded to the Royals along with Lorenzo Cain in a trade that helped lay the groundwork for the Royals' World Series win.
Joakim Soria was the Royals closer for a while, and I cheered for him HARD. He was so much fun to watch, and "Welcome To The Jungle" by Guns N' Roses would blare from the speakers of Kauffman Stadium when he entered the game.
I can't wait to watch the Brewers move through the postseason. There is NOTHING better than playoff baseball, and I'll be on the front line cheering for my adopted team. This is gonna be fun.
