A message to Kansas City

Published 12:00 am Monday, October 2, 2006

We hope the Minnesota Twins organization sends flowers and a card of thanks to the Kansas City Royals.

By defeating the Detroit Tigers Sunday, the Royals left the Twins in the driver&8217;s seat for deciding the American League Central Division champs. By beating the Chicago White Sox that afternoon, our beloved Twins captured the title. It gives the Twins home-field advantage during the first round of the playoffs against the Oakland A&8217;s.

So congratulations go out to the Twins, and thanks go out to the Royals.

Sunday was a good day in sports &8230; well, for Minnesota&8217;s baseball fans, anyway.
