I Partied Like It Was 1985…in 1985


By now you surely know of the Royals triumphant entry into their first playoff in 29 years, the American League Division Series, via the “wildcard” route. The city is experiencing a sports euphoria that has eluded it for 3 decades.

So I go to purchase this shirt at the local sports gear store and the young clerk tells me it’s not returnable. I look him in the eye and tell him it’s unlikely that I am going to bring this shirt back since I already partied like it’s 1985…in 1985. He surveyed me with that look one gets when the cognitive dissonance is simply too vast to be fully comprehended. I can live with that.

Go Royals!
