If I live another 50 years, I may never see another Royals championship. Even if I do, I will probably never see another championship as gratifying as this one. And you know what? That's okay. This was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of season. This was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of team. Sports are pain. And then, suddenly, they are perfection.
Grantland, as you may have heard, has come to an end. Fortunately, ESPN asked me to write about the Royals' world championship - THE ROYALS' WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - and you can read the whole thing here.
More to come. Plenty more to come.
