What a game this has been.

Of course as a student of baseball history I know about the Royals of the 70's and 80's and how they won it all in 85. But I've never seen the Royals in the playoffs. I've never seen Kaufman Stadium in a meaningful game. I'm 27. This is cool.

edit: TRIPLE

edit: TIE GAME

This is so cool. The Royals haven't been in the playoffs since my dad was a year older than I am now. What a game. Unbelievable.

Neither team really wants to give up this game.

Crazy. And it's barely the very first game of the postseason.

Seconded. I'm 24. The good Royals are a myth to me. Just stories of an ancient time. Just like Pittsburgh last year.

This is pretty damned cool.

The Oakland collapse is complete!

I was worried that if they won a one game playoff that they fell backwards into, you know they'd win the World Series.

Fellas, I was around when the Royals were one of baseball's model franchises. This was awesome. It's good to finally see them playing October baseball again.

What a game.

What a finish!

Royals pretty much pulled the rug out from under the A's.

There it is. There's your f***ing classic, crownking. Too bad you weren't on the boards to blather on about it.

and it was Perez who redeems himself with the game winner. Down 7-3 in the 8th I thought KC was done. That was awesome.

Now the Royals get to play real October baseball. It's October 1st.

edit: Aww I was happy for the Royals, but the shot of sad Adam Dunn made me sad. His first career playoff game and he didn't even get in.
