Royals fever is starting up again and why not our Boys in Blue brought home the championship and we are looking forward to a great season!!

Our Kansas City Chiefs started their playoff season with a 30-0 win and the Royals played a wonderful season and ended as World Series Champions after 30 years, Sporting KC takes the World Cup, and  and Northwest Missouri State won its fifth national title in football!!! this is just the beginning of what is happening with sports in KC!

Now Now lets not forget our Women and what they bring to sports in Kansas City- FC Kansas City won back-to-back National Women’s Soccer League crowns in the same year the U.S. won the Women’s World Cup,( they sent 4 of our players to the play in the World Cup) this is great for our midwest metro city!!

Here are  the top 10 regional story-lines of 2015, as determined by members of The Star’s sports team. Thanks to the Star for putting this together for me in one place:

1. Royals beat Mets in five games to win first World Series championship in 30 years, attract an estimated 800,000 for victory parade through downtown(expected 200,000) -- talk about excitement this was the place to be! The city literally shut down!

2. Eric Berry’s fight back from a fall 2014 cancer diagnosis includes a full recovery and Pro Bowl nod in 2015--way to fight and win it

3. Chiefs win opener, lose five straight, then become first team in NFL history to win their next eight games and they continue on this well earned winning streak

4. Mizzou football players’ strike, Gary Pinkel’s resignation after disclosing he has cancer, promotion of Barry Odom to head coach

5. Kansas wins 11th straight Big 12 basketball title, then loses 78-65 to Wichita State in the NCAA Tournament

6. K-State coach Bill Snyder is inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame with a 187-94-1 record (not including 2015) in 23 seasons in Manhattan
