I wrote about this on Facebook the other day. But that just didn’t seem sufficient.
On Friday afternoon, the Royals played the Cleveland Indians at Kauffman Stadium in their 2012 home opener. There was a flyover, and pageantry, and one of those big, damn American flags. The Royals — as they are wont to do — got blitzed 8-3.
But here’s the moment, the scene that sparked the Facebook post (the scene that is tempting me to write a 25,000 word screenplay): Al Borland showed up at Kauffman Stadium to sing “God Bless America.”
