Just writing the words “Kansas City sports” gives me, and any sports fan the chills. Kansas City citizens love their Royals and Chiefs like no other. The Chiefs and Royals play across the street from each other, and this past week everyone in the Kansas City area was dying to see Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid hoist the Lombardi just like the Kansas City Royals hoisted the World Series Championship trophy in 2015. Although the Kansas City Royals are coming off two back-to-back 100-loss seasons, the Royals are looking to rebuild this year and provide a spark similar to the 2015 Kansas City Royals. Longtime Kansas City Royals player, Alex Gordon stated that this year’s Kansas City Chiefs and the 2015 Kansas City Royals are similar. Gordon said when asked about the situation: “You’re giving me goosebumps just thinking about it,” Gordon said. “It’s kind of been looking into a mirror in 2014-2015 with the Royals. Just the way that (the Chiefs have) gone about the playoffs. How they compete together on the field. They’re just having fun, they’re coming back, coming from behind almost every game. So it just kind of reminds you of what we went through. ” Gordon knows that in order for the Royals to rejuvenate their fans and recreate a successful culture, the players need to be collaborative like no other and be willing to compete for each other.
