6 Orthodox Reasons To Love The Royals

No matter if you are a bandwagon fan, or a die-hard fan all these reasons just seem to make sense.

6 Orthodox Reasons To Love The Royals

Baseball season is in full swing and the Kansas City Royals are back, and just as exciting to watch as always. The defending champions have already had their fair share of setbacks, but just like the Royals are known for doing, they push through it. Enjoy this short list of reasons to love your Kansas City Royals.

1. Salvy's famous post game ice baths

Everyone knows it is coming and someone different always receives it.The Salvy ice bath to the player of the game. Nothing is greater than seeing Salvy bright eyed and smiling running out of the dugout with the giant cooler.

2. Wade Davis

One of the best if not the best closer in the MLB. The name Wade Davis is sure to send shivers down a batter's spine. The man has one of the nastiest change-ups known to man.

3. Dugout Interactions

It doesn't matter who is in the dugout there is always some sort of celebration or personal handshake going down. It is very entertaining to watch as well.

4. The comebacks

Down seven to one in the ninth against the Chicago White Sox, and missing a few of our starters to top it off. No problem! The good ol' boys in blue pulled out a win! There is never a dull moment of baseball with this team.

5. Hosmer

Sure he is a good ball player, but he also drives the ladies crazy. Eric Hosmer is one fine looking fella.

6. Whit Merrifield

This guy can do it all. Plays anywhere on the field, can hit well, and has impeccable sense of the game. He is currently on a seven game multi hit streak in his first 11 MLB starts. Could he be the one to fill the hole of the missing Ben Zobrist?

Although they still look rocky at times, there is nothing better than watching some Royals baseball. Can we repeat the World Series win for a third straight trip and a second straight win? Only time will tell.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
