They're partying in Kansas City like it's 1985, and for good reason: The Royals, owners before this season of the longest postseason drought in American professional sports, didn't only make the playoffs this year for the first time since 1985. After a pulsating come-from-behind win over the Oakland A's in the A.L. Wild Card Game, Alex Gordon (pictured) and Co. have steamrolled their opponents, sweeping the A.L. West champion Angels in the American League Division Series and winning the first three games against the A.L. East champion Orioles, putting them on the verge of their first fall classic since George Brett and Co. won it all in 1985.
Kauffman Stadium will be rocking at 4 p.m. Wednesday when Jason Vargas takes the mound looking to pitch the home team into the Fall Classic for the first time since the Reagan administration.
