by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Tonight when the Kansas City Royals walk out onto the field to play their first World Series game of the 21st Century, it will signify a lot of things – redemption, vindication, passion, talent - name your favorite noun.
But above all else, it will be about long suffering Royals fans who have endured 29 years of bad baseball and are now enjoying the fruits of their labor.
